More power to BTAC's elbow
Boston's town council - the Boston Town Area Committee - is to have new powers to do more. Boston Borough Council's Cabinet has agreed BTAC should have powers to spend on projects up to £10,000.
The committee did not previously have executive powers to spend on projects for the town area its elected members cover.
Projects requiring a spend of more than £10,000 will be first approved by the council's Cabinet.
The new ruling will speed up the decision-making process.
