Council Tax hike AGAIN

Council Tax hike AGAIN

4:28pm 10th February 2010
(Updated 5:45pm 18th February 2010)

And so it goes up AGAIN.

Our council tax continues to rise, as a 2% increase has been approved for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

The move's been criticised as excessive, as finance chiefs at the fire service apparently told councilors 1.3% would be enough to balance the budget.

However, Labour and Conservative Councilors voted together preferring the 2% hike.
