The leader of Sandwell Council says putting an end to funding The Public arts centre has been a difficult decision.
It's not been an easy decision to make.
But the fact of the matter is the council can't continue to subsidise The Public.
"The overall cost to the council is currently about £30,000 a week.
That's nearly £1.6 million a year.
"That money is council taxpayers' money. In the face of the cuts the council is facing from central government, this can't carry on.
