The Leader of Bristol City Council, Cllr Barbara Janke, recently took part in a video interview giving her views on a range of issues raised in the budget consultation. It’s the first time we’ve done this as part of the budget consultation process. We’ve broken the interview down into a series of topic based videos which can be accessed on the council’s You-tube site. Cllr Janke gives her view on issues including: public transport, spending on helping vulnerable people, education, carbon reduction and how Bristol can take advantage of the internet.
There are 7 short videos altogether, here is the first one:
The council’s budget will next be debated at our full council meeting on the 23rd February and this meeting will be webcast live and available to review for 6 months afterwards. You are welcome to attend the meeting and ask a question or make a statement – although please read the instructions as prior notification is required.
The background information is available from our previous article on this issue. All your comments about the budget consultation will be circulated to councillors one week before the meeting, so the deadline for comments is 16 February 2010.
