Leader promises a budget for security, stability and success

BUDGET SPECIAL: All the key decisions and how they will impact residents

ARGYLL and Bute Council’s administration has passed its budget promising ‘security, stability and success’.

Twenty councillors voted for the administration’s budget motion, proposed by council leader Dick Walsh, defeating the one-year budget proposed by SNP leader Councillor Sandy Taylor, which drew nine votes, and Councillor Michael Breslin’s Reform group amendment, which attracted three.

The introductory report, presented by head of strategic finance Kirsty Flanagan at a full council meeting at Kilmory Castle, Argyll and Bute Council’s HQ in Lochgilphead, on Thursday February 23, stated more than 1,700 people responded to a consultation on which services matter most and where savings could be made.
