North Shropshire residents given chance to take part in Council’s budget – Border Counties Advertizer

The budget consultation provides local people and organisations with the opportunity to tell the council what they think about the specific proposals outlined in the Financial Strategy for the year which runs from April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019.

“We’ve identified many solutions for next year, including investing in capital projects, like the purchasing of the three shopping centres in Shrewsbury, which generate a return on investment.

David Minnery, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for finance, said: “As a result of substantial government funding reductions, we need to significantly reduce our budget and make unprecedented changes to our services.

The results of the consultation will help inform councillors when they meet to set the council’s budget for 2018/19 on Thursday, February 22.
