Questions about possible cuts to services can be put to a council leader online next week.

Dick Walsh will answer questions on Argyll and Bute Council’s budget and services in an on-line conversation at 7pm on Thursday January 16.

Cllr Walsh said: “The next two years will be relatively stable in terms of our financial planning. However we anticipate significantly reduce funding from 2016 onwards.

“I am keen to hear any views, questions or concerns that people have about our budget and services, in the short and longer term.”

The consultation exercise is based on response methods that have proven most useful to local people in the past, so includes an on-line survey.

There is still time to respond to the survey which will be available until January 24.
