COUNCIL INQUIRY: Councillor rejects suggestion that Boston does not get a fair deal

COUNCILLORS have denied Boston is not getting its fair share of the county funding pot.

The accusation was made by Mark Rawlings who said people in the borough felt let down over school funding.

He said: “We put a massive amount of council tax in Lincoln coffers and feel we don’t get enough out of it. Why don’t we get more? We are being massively let down.”

County Councillor Andrea Jenkyns however felt the accusation was unfair. She said all county decisions were made with close scrutiny, while South Holland district councillor Nick Worth said money was even for every school across the county.
