Help Choose Broxtowe Borough Councils Budget

17th October 2013 Broxtowe Borough Council, Help & Advice Tags: 0 Comments

Broxtowe residents are being urged to get online and have their say on Broxtowe Borough Council’s budget consultation, before it closes on Friday 15th November.

The government recently announced that funding to Broxtowe is set to decrease by over 27% over the next two years and the Council needs to look at how it can continue to provide high quality services, with this funding reduction in mind.

The YouChoose online budget simulator at https://youchoose.yougov.com/BroxtoweBC will put residents at the heart of helping to set the Council’s budget, enabling them to decide how much or little frontline services should receive and tell the Council what your priorities would be as you balance the budget.

Using an up and down slider, residents can allocate the budget and see the consequences to the service and the wider community of having more or less budget. There is also an opportunity to give feedback on where additional savings could be made and how additional income could be generated.

Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic said: “Resident’s views are extremely important to us and we are keen to hear from as many local people
as possible.

“In these tough economic times, it has never been more important for them to have their say about where we can save money.”
