Everything else seems to be un-competitive with commercial rates, you are not a charity.5.00%-5.00%5.00%seem to have a decent set of schools, but the community bit is lacking in all but the most organised villages. Get charities to work collectively to solve this, instead of siloed work on their specialist interest. Many opportunities to pass cost on through contracts where a charity has transferable capabilities to train/educate, etc.-5.00%0.00%-5.00%-10.00%leave it to the police and nhs-15.00%5.00%-10.00%-10.00%5.00%5.00%5.00%-15.00%10.00%increase opportunities for income, and reduce cost of litigation from road users. Pass cost of waste to the producer, and also sell reusable items from the dumps. Instead of letting the employees host ebay shops, why not turn their entrepreneurial spirit into cash generation? Pass the cost of food hygiene to a new Guild, where members benefit like the scoring from better trade, allowing the council to concentrate on the worst offenders instead of inspecting everything. Use other service like the community service to do early morning cleaning/collection of rubbish, etc.-5.00%Still not competitive with commercial sector, automation, collaboration with other councils could reduce the expenditure through better purchasing/ROI and ensuring efficient use of staff. -5.00%5.00%5.00%0.00%5.00%-5.00%10.00%5.00%Use private investors, or a commercial arm to develop income, while reducing cost, and ensuring the tourist keep coming (as long as we tax the businesses correctly for that expenditure)103.25%97.99%You need someone to look for opportunities in current contracts, or a part of any outreach or community funding programs to devolve responsibility to other areas, such as what happens with St Nicolas fields. People should not get a free ride, and there should be more focus on fines, like in Spain. Make money out of your junk, or services that aren't fully utilised.
