2:00pm Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
FINANCE bosses will hold five crunch meetings with residents as they prepare to save an extra £60m.
Oxfordshire County Council will be in Oxford, Witney, Wantage, Didcot and Banbury to discuss plans with residents.
This comes after it announced it would have to save £60m on top of cuts of £200m already made or planned.
The budget-setting process will not begin until the council knows how much cash it is due to receive from central Government, and this may not be announced until December.
Council leader Ian Hudspeth said: “It is important that we hear from residents about the services they value most and which ones they could live without. We also want to talk about charging for services or raising income in other ways.”
Meetings will start on October 14, at Banbury Town Hall,then on October 15 councillors and officers will be at County Hall in Oxford before moving on to Wantage Civic Hall on October 21.
They will be at Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot at October 23 and the final meeting will be at Henry Box School in Witney on October 24. All the meetings will run from 7.30pm to 9pm.
