Dear Joe Mutter,

I note that you say that there are zero street logs for the specified period and that zero mobile enforcement vehicles were deployed during that period.

However, I am unclear as to whether the council are still paying for the MEVs, even though there may be no daily logs for them. Please be kind enough to clarify the position for me.

Yours sincerely,

Steve Baker

Joe Mutter, Sutton Borough Council

Dear Steve Baker
Under the existing contract our enforcement contractor has a costed
vehicle, equipped for mobile CCTV enforcement, however this vehicle was
not deployed in a live enforcement capacity during the period specified. 
Yours Sincerely
Joe Mutter
