Bristol Mayor George Ferguson has asked those who can to pay more to the council. He wants wealthier residents to donate to his trust fund to help those most affected by council cuts.
The Mayor's budget has been voted through with cuts of £35 million, and 300 job losses from the council's 7000-strong workforce. Mr Ferguson warned that a further £65 million worth of savings will have to be made during the next three years.
The 'Mayor's Fund for Bristol' will be set up in April and the Mayor says he will contribute £1000 a month to it.
