SALFORD COUNCIL ACCOUNTS
 

Star date: 5th August 2010 

ROLL UP! ROLL UP! FOR THE GREAT SALFORD COUNCIL ACCOUNTS SHOW!!!

Yep, it's time for the great annual opening up of Salford City Council's Accounts…From now until 27th August anyone who is resident in Salford can inspect Salford Council's books.  And you can ask to see virtually anything you feel like looking at…

So, do you want to know how the Council has spent £13million in Lower Broughton? Need to get details of how the City Council is putting £28.7million (believe it!) into the Salford City Reds stadium? Are you dying to find out all about Council fat cats? It's all there waiting to be gawped at.

Roll up! Roll up!!! It's your once a year opportunity to get down with Salford's draft accounts…

Full details here…


Salford City Council's draft accounts for 2009/10 are now up on the Council's website (click here) and until August 27th anyone in Salford has the right to inspect them and ask questions or request to see anything they fancy - except personal stuff, stuff that's not relevant to the accounts and `legally protected' stuff of course.

Nevertheless, this is a once in a year opportunity to look at how much money the Council has spent in all areas, from housing to schools, to its borrowing and huge deficits. The draft accounts list the salaries of the Council's big earners (we've already done this bit for you, click here), the companies it owns and loads of details about PFIs and the BBC orchestra and things. Well worth a visit. All 134 luscious pages of it!

You can see the accounts online (here) or you can go down to the Civic Centre and have a nosey. Just phone 0161 793 3245 or e-mail council.finances@salford.gov.uk  to make an appointment. Further details here.

But remember – you've only got until 27th August, so hurry, hurry, hurry!!!

I cannot believe that Salford Council spent £10 million on consultants in one year!! Is this what we pay council tax for.

Is there any particular reason why the accounts will be taken down at the end of August?

How much money has the council received from Broughton Green "super profits" or indeed at all. I bet that is personal, not relevant or legally protected.
