Budget statement by Cllr Cree
Leader of Moray Council, Cllr Stewart Cree, welcomed the passing of the budget by Full Council.
He said: "We have been working with senior managers for some months, looking at ways to reduce our costs and balance the books. I am also grateful to the staff in general who have responded with suggestions and proposals that have allowed us to present a range of savings which will bring both long and short term benefits to the council.
"I am pleased to include in this budget some of the proposals from opposition groups, over which there was widespread agreement. Setting a difficult budget is much easier when people work together."
