The consultation about Birmingham City Council’s budget for 2014-15 draws to a close on Friday 10 January.

And cabinet members will be online tomorrow evening (7 January) from 7.15-9.15pm to answer your budget consultation questions in a special webcast.

Plans for the future of the city council are outlined in a White Paper 'Planning Birmingham's Future and Budget Consultation 2014-15'.

Leader of the Council, Sir Albert Bore, and his cabinet colleagues attended a series of public meetings last month, answering questions and listening to views on the 75 budget proposals.

Now anyone unable to attend the meetings can put your questions to Cabinet in the two-hour Budget Consultation webcast.

Please send your questions to press.office@birmingham.gov.uk and we will answer as many as possible in the two-hour timeslot. Alternatively post a question via the panel below.

Leader of the Council, Sir Albert Bore, said: “The budget consultation meetings have been well attended but we understand it can be difficult for some people to get along to these events.

“The challenge we currently face is of importance to everyone living in Birmingham, so for the first time, we plan to use the equipment used to stream council meetings in an attempt to reach a wider audience.

“We'll be online to answer your questions and explain the many difficult challenges facing Birmingham City Council over the next few years.”

The webcast will be broadcast here: http://www.birmingham.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/123819

In the meantime, our online survey – 2014 Budget and Birmingham’s Future – will be online until Friday 10 January.
