Haringey Borough Council budget consultation to take place next week
People are being called to give their views about how money should be spent in this year’s council budget.
Changes and cuts in the year ahead will be discussed at a consultation about Haringey Borough Council’s budget for the 12 months from April.
The meeting will take place at South Harringay Junior School in Mattison Road on Wednesday January 9 from 6.30pm to 9pm.
The council says it wants to hear residents' views about council tax and what the authority should prioritise in the year ahead.
Cabinet Member for Finance Councillor Joe Goldberg said: “We are now facing the third year of the Government’s austerity programme, which has seen £84 million cut from Haringey’s budget.”
He added: “We will continue to protect front line services as best we can, particularly for the elderly, vulnerable adults, and families.
“This is why the largest cuts have been made to administrative budgets such as communications, IT and finance.
“It is also why we are investing in ambitious regeneration plans, creating jobs for young people, and helping our local economy to grow.”
