Public urged to have a say on council budget

Have your say

Members of the public in Rotherham are being urged to have their say on ways the borough council could save £40 million over the next two years.

The consultation period runs from Monday until the end of November.

Rotherham Council’s budget has been slashed because of government funding cuts.

Karl Battersby, council strategic director of environmental and development services, said: “By any stretch of the imagination this is going to be a difficult time for Rotherham.

“This is an issue that affects everybody in Rotherham and we want to hear opinions and suggestions.

“There may well be some golden ideas out there that help us deliver services in a more economical way. The next two years are going to be hard and we want to make sure we get this right.”
