Middlesbrough Council is inviting members of the public to attend a series of budget presentation meetings during January.

The meetings are an opportunity to discuss the Council’s general financial position, the budget setting process and potential Council Tax levels for 2012/2013.

The presentations will not include the budget reduction proposals announced recently by the Mayor, or details of Cleveland Police or Cleveland Fire Brigade, as their budgets are set separately.

The meetings will be presented by senior officers from Middlesbrough Council’s Strategic Resources department.

Members of the public will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.

  • General public: 2pm – 3pm, Monday, January 23, Council Chamber, Middlesbrough Town Hall
