Birmingham residents are invited to have their say about the future of council services at a series of community workshop events across the city next month.
Councillors and officers will be on hand to answer public questions at 10 events to be held between November 4-12.
The plan is to discuss how the city council can work with communities across Birmingham to plan and shape services as budgets continue to shrink significantly.
Chief Executive, Mark Rogers, said: “The reality is that with less money to spend on services, we need to change. So the council of 2020 will look very different to the council today.
“To get this right councillors and officers need to work closely with partners, community groups and residents, so we need to have very honest, grown-up discussions with the people of Birmingham.
“We’ve already had invaluable conversations in recent years that have helped us develop our Future Council programme. Now we need to know if we’re on the right track with our ideas.”
The workshops get underway at Ladywood’s Summerfield Community Centre on 4 November (1.30-3pm) and each of the city’s 10 districts will host an event, concluding with Stirchley Baths, Selly Oak, on 12 November (6.30-8pm)
