Last days to have say on budget

Local residents only have a few days to comment on how the county council reduces its spending by £22m over three financial years with an online budget balancing exercise.

The online consultation, which started last month will close on Sunday. The consultation sets out a range of options that could be used to generate savings over the coming three financial years.

Residents can show their support for services by increasing or decreasing funding support and seeing the impact on the service and council’s overall budget.

Cllr Wynne Jones, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, said: “The council has to produce a balanced budget. This is an opportunity for residents to see the challenges we face and show their support for service areas by allocating money to one area balanced with a reduction from another.

“The information provided by residents will prove valuable information for both the cabinet and the council, as it will show where residents think the savings should be made, in order to achieve the £22m target.”

The budget simulator will be on the council’s website under ‘Consultations’.
