It’s Budget time again at the County Council! Yesterday we received the details of the budget proposed by the Conservative administration, and put the finishing touches to the budget proposals of the Liberal Democrat group. The full Council debate on the Budget is next Tuesday.
Because Warwickshire is a “hung” council with no overall majority for any political group, the reality of the budget process is usually that some form of agreement has to be hammered out between at least two of the parties. Last year’s budget was jointly agreed between Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Labour, but I think that the same is unlikely to happen again this time.
As usual, it will probably be a long day next Tuesday ….. !Leave a comment
