City of Lincoln Council poised to agree to axe councillor's ward budgets
A decision to axe councillor's ward budgets for good causes in the community is expected to be made on Monday, March 25.
The City of Lincoln Council is proposing to cut the £1,000 each of its 33 councillors has each year to spend improving their area.
The ruling executive is set to approve this at a meeting at City Hall at 6pm.
It is part of a £3 million cost cutting package over the next three years, with £1 million to be saved in 2013/14 to balance the budget.
Charging £25 a year for garden waste collections, axing the three urban rangers, the commons warden and the sports development team are still awaiting final approval.
