More on the budget

The main revenue and capital budgets may have been set for 2007/08; but the third-party "grants to organisations" are still to be decided.

Recommendations for these grants come to the Council Executive meeting on Tuesday 13th March (for final agreement) ... and I'm now starting to receive quite a bit of correspondence on a variety of applications.

The amount of work that voluntary organisations undertake for local authorities is often completely under-estimated - have a look at last year's report, which shows that some £20.7million was allocated in 2006/07.
