A series of public meetings is taking place where county residents can scrutinise county council finances.

There is the chance to question the county council’s Leader and executive councillor for finance about the authority’s budget during the meetings, one of which will take place in Grantham on January 28.

As well as looking at which services are compulsory and which are optional, the meetings explain where savings have already been made and how the authority is funded.

Coun Marc Jones, executive councillor for finance at the county council, said: “We feel it’s really important to give people every opportunity to have their say on how public money is raised and spent in the county. It’s also important that the full extent of our budget reduction and our compulsory expenditure is explained so that there is a clear picture of the options we have going forward.”

The Grantham meeting will be held from 6pm until 8pm at South Kesteven District Council (Council Chamber) on Thursday, January 28.
