The Council is facing a budget challenge which affects how much money we have to invest in our services in the coming years. The amount of money we get from the Government and through Council Tax has remained about the same, yet it’s costing us more money to run services and there are more people in the city needing our help.
We need to save £67 million from our budget over the next three years and still make sure we can provide the services that are important to the people of Edinburgh.
