Town Clerk and Responsible Finance Officer for Hailsham Town Council John Harrison said: “All local authorities are required by law to produce an annual accounts document at the end of the financial year, which is made available to members of the public to view.”
“These accounts, which have been in an easy-to-understand, user-friendly format, demonstrate to tax-payers effective stewardship for public money, whilst allowing them to hold us to account by seeing where their money goes.”
“Open local government is essential for good democracy and that’s why councils make their income and expenditure details available to the public – everyone has a right to know how their taxes are spent.”
The Town Council’s latest quarterly Net Expenditure and Fund Summaries, which report all financial transactions throughout the past year in more detail, are available to download here.
