Living Wage

The SNP coalition admistration in Dumfries and Galloway have set out a balanced budget for 2013/14, taking £7.2 Million of efficiencies and savings from across Council services, with no compulsory redundancies and paying the living wage at £7.50 for our employees. Our budget also provides an indication of where a further £3.5 Million of savings will be made in the future, providing us with a strong position to tackle future budgets. Once again this year we will continue to freeze the council tax that you pay – still the lowest in mainland Scotland.
