Hertfordshire County Council is inviting residents to share their views about how money from their council tax should be spent next year. The feedback will help the Council shape its services and decide the priorities for its budget for the 2020/21 year from April 2020.

Residents can learn more and have a say by completing an online survey at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/budgetsurvey by 15th December 2019. The Council will then set its budget at a county council meeting on 25th February 2020.

Cllr Ralph Sangster, Cabinet Member for Resources and Performance, said: “Your council tax along with money from other funding sources pays for a wide range of services provided by Hertfordshire County Council. This includes support for vulnerable and disabled adults and children, maintaining and keeping traffic moving on 3,000 miles of roads, planning ahead for a growing and ageing population and running the county’s fire and rescue service.

“It is so important that Hertfordshire County Council get feedback from you, its residents, so they can continue to provide the right services for the right people, so please have your say by filling in the consultation.”
