Hertsmere Borough Council set to approve the budget tomorrow at Civic Offices in Borehamwood
Councillors will meet to debate and vote on their budget and council tax for the next year tomorrow.
Hertsmere Borough Council’s budget for the 2014/2015 financial year has been passed by its executive and scrutiny committees and is now going to full council for approval.
It was announced at a meeting of the executive committee last month that council tax will be frozen for another year.
The draft net budget for 2014/15 is £12,294,970, which represents a cut of £228,180 on the 2013/14 budget.
The council will also vote to change its constitution after the Government announced local authorities would have to record the votes of particular councils at its annual budget meeting.
This is designed to encourage transparency as the Government said local people should be able to see how those they have elected to represent them have voted on these crucial decisions.
The meeting will start at 7.30pm at Hertsmere Council's Civic Offices in Elstree Way.
