Have your say on local cuts

Residents of Welshpool and its surrounding communities have until the end of August to register their views on potentially drastic cuts to public services.
 
The county council launched its budget consultation exercise earlier this summer asking residents to comment on 21 different key services at public workshops, during face-to-face interviews and on-line.
 
Although the workshops and interviews have been completed the on-line exercise will remain on Powys County Council’s website until the end of the month. To have your say, go to www.powys.gov.uk and click on the Budget Consultation link.
 
Board Member for Finance, Councillor Tony Thomas said: “Like all local authorities we are facing huge budget pressures and want residents to either go along to a workshop or go on-line and take part in this crucial exercise. We have some tough decisions to make and want to hear what people think.”
 
During the summer exercise budget workshops were staged in Welshpool and more than 200 interviews were carried out in communities across the county.
 

The on-line exercise allows anyone who lives in the area not able to visit a workshop or take part in an interview to have their say about the budget dilemma. The on-line exercise closes at the end of August.
