Have a say at new forum Have

HOW the council spends taxpayers’ money will be the subject of the first of the new community forums this week.

Erewash Borough Council reviewed its community forums last year, cutting them from four to two last year.

The meeting for residents in Ilkeston and the north of the borough is at the Arena in Rutland Street on Wednesday.

The discussion at 7pm will be led by director for resources Ian Sankey, who will explain how the council’s budget was set. Residents can ask him questions about the topic.

Anyone unable to attend can call consultation officer Ian Marsden in advance with questions on 0115 907 2244.
