Still time to tell the county council how to spend public money

There’s still time to take part in a West Sussex County Council survey asking residents for their views on managing council finances and where they think resource should be focussed.

‘Every Pound Counts’ asks residents and businesses how they would allocate public money. It includes a section where people have the chance to be ‘chancellor for the day’ by allocating points – representing sums of money – to different areas.

County Council Leader Louise Goldsmith said: “I would urge people to take part in this consultation and let us have their views on where they think our resources should be targeted.

“In these difficult financial times, the County Council has limited funds and this is a chance for people to let us know not only where they think these should be focussed, but also where they think savings should be made.”

The survey closes on Sunday 9 September.

Details of the survey can be found at Libraries and Help Points or by visiting the County Council website where people can either fill in the survey online or download a copy.

People can also request a paper copy of the survey by calling the County Council on 01243 777100.
