Cutting printers saves taxpayers £70k
3:00pm Sunday 11th August 2013 in News
THE taxpayer has been saved £70k per year thanks to the number of council printers being slashed.
Officials at Bucks County Council have revealed that dropping the number of the machines from 650 to 220 two years ago has made the five figure saving.
Peter Hardy, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources, said: "These savings are a classic example of how costs can be cut by working in a smarter more efficient way.
"UK councils down the years have been somewhat unfairly accused of having a licence to print money. It’s quite the opposite in Buckinghamshire - our printers have given us a licence to save money."
