There are just hours left to have your say on Wrexham Council’s proposals to save / cut £13 million over the next two years.

More than 3000 residents across Wrexham have had their say on the proposals so far, which include cuts to school music service, scrapping PCSO funding, selling or demolishing Crown Buildings and reviewing library services across the county borough.

Since 2008 Wrexham Council have made £52 million of cuts, however over the next two years it is looking to make further savings of £13 million.

Titled Difficult Decisions, the consultation has been up and running since October and is today entering into the final few hours for the public to take part.

During the consultation participants will have the chance to ‘Strongly agree, strongly disagree, neither agree or disagree, disagree and strongly disagree’ on 13 different council areas. There is also the chance to comment on each of the proposals at the bottom of the page.
