Boston Borough Council will be taking part in the Local Government Association’s second #CouncilsCan Day – an online celebration to highlight the critical work of local government during the coronavirus pandemic.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Boston Borough Council has worked tirelessly to keep services running during this crisis and support residents and businesses. Including:
- Continuing with council services to the standards they require eg, refuse and recycling collections, benefit payments etc
- Making sure all Covid-related Government messaging is relayed to our community
Boston Borough Council will be taking part in the national social media campaign on Tuesday 10th November to promote ongoing council efforts to lead communities through this crisis and beyond.
Leader of the Council, Crll Paul Skinner said “Councils Can Day is a brilliant way to highlight what we do on a daily basis and even more so during this year. Covid-19 has bought with it many challenges for staff across the Council and I am very grateful for their continued hard work at this very difficult time.”
Cllr Peter Fleming, Chairman of the LGA’s Improvement and Innovation Board, said “In this time of national crisis, it is council staff who have kept our communities running and provided crucial local leadership.
“While showcasing this vital and fantastic work, the LGA will be using the #CouncilsCan Day to highlight that councils can have an even greater impact on the health and wealth of our country with proper and sustainable funding.”
