Perhaps they are smoking wacky baccy or drinking rocket fuel out of test tubes. Or perhaps there are subversives at work on Jail Hill who are gleefully undermining the authority of the self-proclaimed best council in Wales with parodies of local authority press releases. Who knows.
The latest masterpiece concerns the refurbishment of the Murray Street Multi Storey Car Park in Llanelli. Most of us would find it hard to get excited about a car park, but not Carmarthenshire County Council's Press Office.
This large concrete and steel edifice is, wait for it, now one of the town's "bright iconic buildings":
"The rather dowdy looking 40-year-old 527 space car park has had lifts replaced, stairwells overhauled and all seven decks have been specially concrete treated and decorated with non-slip walkways.
Now it has been transformed to one of Llanelli town centre’s bright iconic buildings.
It has new crash barriers, brilliant high visibility lighting, a visual display showing the occupancy, signage, electric car charging points and a spectacular new exterior look between decks with silver eye-mesh cladding on the entrance elevations."
Cllr Colin Evans, who normally confines himself to fairly sober impressions of the German Nobel Prize winning author Gunter Grass, is quoted as saying,
"It is a project the town can be proud of and the eye mesh cladding on the front elevations have given it a bright new look for another 25-years of use.”
