People living in Hertfordshire are being given the chance to have their say in the next few months as work gets under way to agree county budget priorities for the coming years.
Councillor Chris Hayward, Herts County Council’s cabinet member for resources, said: “We need to make some important decisions about how we allocate money and we want your views
“If you live in Hertfordshire these decisions affect you, so please have your say.”
Since 2010 County Hall has slashed £211 million from its annual budget but £80 million of savings will still need to be found by 2017/18 to meet government requirements.
Councillor Hayward said: “We continue to seek out ways of making efficiencies, working in partnership and being innovative, but given the tough financial challenge we face, this can only go so far.
