D&G Budget shows 'commitment to investing in local economy'

“Our draft budget demonstrates the Administration’s commitment to investing in the local economy even in difficult times by investing in our schools, supporting small businesses through our planned preventative maintenance scheme and still avoids compulsory redundancies while continuing to keep our Council Tax the lowest in mainland Scotland.

“We believe our budget is a good answer to a challenging question; how we continue to invest in our region when the public finances are under more pressure than ever.”

– Ivor Hyslop, Council Leader, Dumfries and Galloway Council
