Beautiful start to the year.
I'm new to local government and my council is now looking to draw up a longer term budget as part of its FIPFA financial code implementation.
I am interested to hear from others how they might have involved the services, and or cabinet in drawing up the budget. My main concern is having a plausible long term budget given the council as a whole only have medium term plans and the councillors have fixed term (so are not incentivised to look beyond the medium term).
Many thanks in advance for your insights.
