The Cabinet Paper setting out the Council’s budget Plan proposals is now being printed ready for release tomorrow. This is not a light document having over 500 pages.
Tomorrow morning my Cabinet and I will be briefing all County Councillors on our budget proposals. This is different to previous years when officers have briefed members. It seems right if we are making the judgements we should give the briefings.
The papers will be made public in the afternoon following a staff briefing some time around 2pm. Most of today has been focused, so far, on ensuring our readiness for tomorrow.
Cabinet meets on the 31st and will need to decide what they want to recommend to a full Council Meeting.
