STAFFORD and Stone residents have until Monday to have their say on whether or not the number of councillors should be slashed at Stafford Borough Council.
The public consultation on potentially cutting council member numbers from 59 to 40 closes on Monday and the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England is urging people to give their views.
The consultation is the first part of the commission’s electorial review.
Max Caller, chairman of the Local Government Boundary Commission, said: "This is your chance to shape your council for the future.
"We want to know if you think 40 is the right number of councillors to be able to take decisions effectively and whether it's the right number to represent the interests of all the borough's communities," he said.
"If you don't agree that Stafford should be represented by 40 councillors, we want you to tell us your alternative and why you think there should be more, or fewer, members of the council in the future.
"Once we have taken a view on the number of councillors, we will re-draw ward boundaries to accommodate those elected members and we will ask local people to have their say during that process as well."
