The Finance Specialist presented the 2020/21 – 2021/25 Draft Budget which provided Members the opportunity to consider the funding available to deliver Lake services.
The Finance Specialist referred to Appendix 1 to the report (Revenue Budget Pressures) which excluded recharges for current and future years, explaining that this was due to the fundamental restructuring of the Council’s staffing as part of the Customer Connect Programme. It was planned to calculate recharges in Autumn 2020 when the new operating model had been in place for six months. The Finance Specialist also drew Members’ attention to an anomaly in Appendix 1 to the report and, in response to a request, undertook to amend and recirculate the document.
RESOLVED – That the latest draft estimates be noted prior to their submission to Council for approval as part of the overall Draft Revenue Budget 2020/21 to 2024/25.
