Lincolnshire County Council and Rutland County Council left millions of pounds short because of Covid-19 but they won't go bankrupt
Lincolnshire County Council and Rutland County Council will be left millions of pounds short of cash as a result of Covid-19 - but not enough to declare themselves bankrupt.
Lincolnshire County Council expects to be left with a £5.8m shortfall, while Rutland is predicting a shortfall of up to £2m. Both councils said they would rely on reserves.
Lincolnshire leader Martin Hill (Con) said the council had “inevitably faced greater costs than expected” as it sought to support the most vulnerable residents.
