Have your say on Otley council spending
11:00am Friday 31st May 2013 in Local news
Otley residents are again being asked to say how they think some of the Town Council’s budget should be spent.
The council launched Voice Your Choice, under which the public can nominate and vote for community-focused projects they would like funded, last year – and was inundated with suggestions.
Now the participatory budgeting scheme is returning with an increased budget of £10,000, double that available in 2012.
The council’s community development officer, Jason Knowles, said: “If you have an idea or project which you believe will make a difference to our community, then we would like to hear from you.
“A key feature of Voice Your Choice is that residents are able to participate in the decision making process through a public ballot.”
