Wiltshire Council budgets in disarray
A report to the WC cabinet (agenda) shows a deficit on the current account of nearly four and a half million pounds. Council officers say they hope to have the accounts back under control by the end of the financial year, preferably without having to raid the reserves yet again.
The main red areas are:
Special Educational Needs, £1.796m
Car parking, 0.250m
Arts and Libraries, 0.400m
Business services, 0.160m
Restructure and Contingency (sic), £1.878m
in addition there are what's described as 'pressures' of 2.2m on the Adult Social Care budget.
