Recorded Votes for the 2022 Budget

Most decisions are made with a show of hands and they are noted as “carried” or “defeated”.
A written record of how everyone voted must be requested by a Councillor before the vote and is known as a “recorded vote”.

Red highlights where Councillors voted to increase spending.
Green highlights where Councillors voted not to increase spending.
The amount of the increase voted upon is shown under “Budget Cost”.
