SEATON Town Council has voted against paying £1,200 towards the costs of producing the Seaton Guide.During the monthly meeting on Monday (December 15), councillors recommended the Tourist Information Centre meets the costs, because they were making a profit from the guides.New town clerk David Mears estimated the centre could still make £100 profit - even if it paid for the printing.
