    Whilst I have every respect for some members of the Community Council, I feel that they have overall lost touch with the people of Lochgelly. I would like to see more openess about what they do, what decisions they make on behalf of Lochgelly residents. Do they have a website, produce a newsletter, do they publicise their meetings, anything at all to let us know they even exist? Many people don’t know about the Community Council, or what they do. What do they do? I would like the Community Council to communicate better with the residents of Lochgelly, and not just a ballot paper when they happen to need votes. Give us more (or any) information please!
