Scarborough residents to give opinion on budget

Scarborough residents have been asked to give their opinion on how the council proposes to save £2m.

Scarborough Borough Council wants residents to consider proposals for next financial year's budget which will be approved in February.

The proposals include protecting front-line services, saving £2.26m and freezing council tax.

The council said it wanted to show the link between what "people asked for and the final proposals put forward".

Strategic director Hilary Jones said: "The proposals that have been put forward are fair and minimise the impact as much as possible on services for residents and our staff.

"They also reflect many of the views expressed by residents."

Residents can complete the Local Area Budget Survey on the council's website or at Customer First centres.
