Update: At the meeting of the Full Council on 24th January 2017, Councillors (by an 11-4 vote) decided on an increase of 3.07%.
Next Tuesday (10th January) Crowborough Town Council will discuss the budget for the next financial year 2017-18.
It is proposed that the Town Council’s share of the total Council Tax bill (precept) be increased from £151.55 to £157.86 for an average Band D property. This represents a £6.31 increase or 12 pence per week (4.17%).
This is the higher of two proposals ‘on the table’ and includes additional salary costs to be discussed at the meeting.
Council Tax is collected by Wealden District Council on behalf of East Sussex County Council, Wealden District Council, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, East Sussex Fire Authority and the Town Council.
The Finance and General Purposes Committee starts at 7.30pm. Meetings are open to members of the public, who can request to address Councillors at the start.
