It is our duty as a Community Council to answer consultations from Dumfries and Galloway Council and they have asked us to let people know about an on line calculator to help collect views on balancing the next budget
Because of 'austerity' they are going to have to cut an estimated £30million from their budget in the next two years and they want everyone to help to make the decisions.
The link to the online simulator is http://dumgal.gov.uk/budget
There will also be a drop in session on Thursday 29 November from 2pm to 4.30pm at Lochthorn Customer Service Centre, Edinburgh Road, Heathhall for anyone to attend.
If, like me, you try and fail to make the necessary savings, there is no place to make any comment unless you contact your councillors, MSPs and/or MP
