Residents will have the chance to tell the council which services they value the most, and which could be cut, this week.
Luton Borough Council will be setting up a stand in The Mall, as part of it’s consultation on next year’s budget, from Monday, August 11, till August 15, from 10am till 4pm, with a councillor present to discuss issues from 11am till 2pm,
Shoppers will be asked to take part in the We Need To Talk budget consultation survey, which will also be online at www.luton.gov.uk/currentconsultations.
Over the last four years the council has made savings of around £72 million, but over the next two years it has to identify further savings of £33 million.
Councillor Hazel Simmons, leader of the council, said: “There have been some incredibly difficult decisions in order to save £72 million so far.
“Unfortunately we know there will be more crucial steps to take in the foreseeable future and these cuts affect everyone in one way or another. That is why it is vital that we hear from as many Luton people as possible.”
