Next year’s budget

I have copied the below from a council press release. I urge you to give it a go and see what you would do. I have done so and it certainly makes you think.


Southend-on-Sea Borough Council wants YOU to have your say on what savings should be made to balance the 2012/13 budget. And now it’s easier than ever to register your opinions, thanks to a handy budget simulator which can be accessed via the Council’s website. The simulator – which can be found by clicking on – went live on Monday 19th September. It allows residents to choose different ways a budget can be drawn up to achieve the necessary savings of 10 per cent. The simulator does this by showing the possible consequences when residents increase or decrease the budget for different Council-provided service areas.
