Tell us where to make cuts

Have your say

ROTHERHAM Council is seeking local people’s views on how the authority uses its budget.

The council has to save £20.4 million next year and its leaders want local people to tell them how the council should save money.

People are being asked log onto to point out the most important things the council should be delivering and where money should be spent.

Users can also play with the online Budget Simulator, which allows them to put themselves in the council’s position and increase or decrease budget spending in areas they consider important.

Once the budget has been balanced, people can get a summary of their ‘budget’.

The anonymous data will be used to help the council.

Deputy Leader, Coun Jahangir Akhtar, said: “We would like you to tell us what you think are the priority issues where you believe most council money should go.”

The deadline is December 23.
