Lib Dem response to Council Budget
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OFFICE OF THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT COUNCIL GROUP IN WILTSHIRE
The Liberal Democrat Council Group have succeeded in securing additional funding for the most vulnerable people in Wiltshire.
In her budget speech Cllr Ansell criticised the Conservative Administration’s short sighted budgets of the last few years, stating “It’s a sobering fact that if the administration had refused the government grant and opted to moderately raise the council tax over the same period, the budget would have an additional £20mil in it by 2020 - but that opportunity has been lost for ever "
The Liberal Democrat Group proposed a council tax increase in their 2015 budget but it was voted out.
