How should Somerset County Council spend its money?
PEOPLE are being asked how Somerset County Council should spend its cash.
The council has already held 16 public Listening, Learning, Changing roadshows to explain balancing its budget and now it is urging people to give their views online and by taking part in polls on Facebook at www.facebook.com/scc.thebalancingact.
Those completing a poll can enter a free prize draw to win a Somerset Christmas hamper or one-month’s free membership to a Somerset leisure centre.
Alternatively, users can visit www.sccbalancingact.co.uk and play the Balancing Act game to balance the council’s spending.
Leader of Somerset County Council, Cllr John Osman, said: “Decisions won’t be made on this feedback alone, but it does help us build a picture of what matters most to people.
“It will be one of the things we take into account in the coming months when, like all local authorities, we have some very difficult decisions to make.”
