Question

What was the total cost for Christmas decorations in the council area in 2016?
 
What is the budget for Christmas decorations in 2017?
 

Answer

The council does not spend money on official Christmas decorations/lights or switch on events. These are arranged and managed by the Stornoway Amenity Trust.  Council Members in the Stornoway Wards may opt to contribute to these via the Members Ward Priority Fund but this is discretionary.  In 2016/17 they contributed £1,807.43 towards Christmas Decorations.  At this stage there are no indications if there will be contributions made in the current year.
