Have your say on how your council tax money is spent

Published: 28 Oct 2019

Hertfordshire County Council is calling on residents to have their say on how the money from their council tax is spent. This feedback will help to inform the county council’s decision-making process as it prioritises its budget for next year.

The county council are encouraging residents to visit http://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/budgetsurvey  to take part in the online survey and have their say on the vital services by 15 December 2019. The results of the survey will then be part of the final outcome at the county council meeting on 25 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. If you live in Hertfordshire these decisions affect you and your local communities, so please have your say by filling in the consultation.”
