Ian Yuill on the Council Budget

Aberdeen’s Liberal Democrat councillors have hailed the City Council Budget proposed by the Council’s Liberal Democrat and SNP Partnership as a “budget for Aberdeen and Aberdeen residents”.

Liberal Democrat Co-Leader of the Council Ian Yuill said, “We have delivered a budget for Aberdeen and Aberdeen residents. It protects the vital services people depend upon, invests in Aberdeen’s school buildings, continues to tackle the backlog of road and pavement repairs, allocates £1 million for measures to tackle poverty, and targets action to improve our city centre.”

Ian Yuill continued, “I am especially pleased that we are abolishing the Garden Tax. From September, every household in Aberdeen will be able to have one brown wheelie bin of garden waste collected for free. The Garden Tax is a tax on recycling, and I am delighted we have been able to abolish it.”
