Chaired the Council’s Scrutiny Committee which meets monthly to review issues and policies that effect the people of Mid Suffolk. On this occasion we reviewed the budget setting process and made a number of recommendations regarding public consultation, elected member financial training, member input into the budget and access to external funding. The actual budget will be discussed by the Executive Committee on 20 December and will go to Council for Full approval on 28 February. The Conservative Administration have warned that the 2007/08 budget will be a cautious and that there will be no new investment unless self-financing schemes can be identified.
