Maldon: Council overspends but park's record summer visitors brings in extra cash
3:00pm Friday 27th September 2013 in Local News
Maldon District Council spent £88,000 more than budgeted for the first three months of the financial year.
It also lost £39,400 in expected income.
But there was good news as the warm summer meant expected income from the splash park at Promenade Park in Maldon doubled.
The council had budgeted an overall spend of £2,517,000 for April 1 to July 31 but some departments overspent.
But the splash park at Promenade Park - which had been forecast to make £16,000 - made £32,506 due to the high number of visitors over the warm summer.
