Budget joys

by Stephen Tall on February 1, 2007

Oxford city’s Lib Dems have now published our budget (such a labour of love, believe me). The headlines are:

  • £4m savings identified: no cuts to front-line services
  • Below-inflation Council Tax rises for next THREE years
  • £575,000 new spending proposals in next 12 months to improve public services

For those who find council budgets just toooo exciting, full details are here.

The Lib Dems are a minority administration, so the next fortnight is going to involve a fair amount of negotiation. Which is fine – I mean it’s not like I’ve spent the last three months working on this already, or anything like that…
