The interview I did for BBC Radio Humberside this evening with regards schools funding got me thinking.
Make Full Draft Budget Public
Although ERYC employ over 14,000 officers this is still less than 5% of the population of the East Riding.
The budget is the most important decision 67 ERYC Councillors vote on in the year.
Why do we not encourage 95% of the population to share their views? Do ERYC believe over 320,000 residents have nothing to contribute to the most important decision of the year?
I believe the full draft budget should be made public to all residents at the same time it is made public to councillors.
This would not cost ERYC a penny and could save them thousands.
It is time to listen to East Riding residents.
