LEICESTERSHIRE county leaders want the public to have their say on plans to cut thousands of pounds from a council’s budget.
Leicestershire County Council will launch a 12-week consultation on its plans save £590,000 from funding to agencies.
Council leader Nick Rushton (above) said: “There are two reasons why we’re proposing to change the way we fund voluntary agencies.
“We want to reflect the public’s priorities and ensure groups work with us to deliver the council’s priorities, particularly around supporting vulnerable individuals, families and communities.”
Earlier this month the county council agreed a budget to tackle a £110 million gap by 2018.
It included plans to cut £590,000 from its annual funding for agencies.
