Public services across Powys are set to benefit from a £1.93m cash boost- after Kirsty Williams forced the Welsh Government’s hand and secured extra money.
The initial local government settlement left rural councils, and particularly Powys, underfunded. Kirsty fought our corner in the Assembly and brought back the extra cash.
Powys have said the money will be spent on:
- Extra money for education
- Extra money for adult social care
- Preventing changes to four-weekly black bin collections
- Preventing further cuts to rural bus services
Preventing the introduction of charges for post-16 student bus travel
