RESIDENTS are invited to attend a meeting where they can give their views on how the council should spend its money.
The December 14 event is a chance for people to tell Bromley council what their priorities are and which services council tax should be spent on.
The meeting will include a brief overview of the council's finances and spending. It comes in advance of the setting of the budget and service planning for 2010-11 and beyond. Residents will have the opportunity to ask councillors questions about the public services they provide.
Council leader Stephen Carr said: "We live in challenging economic times. Local people's views on how we prioritise our resources are important.
"I hope as many people as possible from communities across the borough will take up this opportunity to have their say and help shape how we spend, save and continue to build a better Bromley in the year ahead."
Questions, comments or suggestions can be submitted up to 24 hours in advance to committee.
firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 020 8461 7077 or can be put forward on the night.
There is no need to book and tea and coffee will be served after the meeting.
It takes place at the Civic Centre, in Stockwell Close, Bromley, at 7pm.
