All the councils have now decided their budgets and council tax rates for the next financial year.
Ashfield District Council is to raise their part of the council tax by 1.94%. I am firmly not in agreement with this and voted against this proposal at the budget meeting on March 3.
In fact, the Independents put forward an alternative budget based on the rate of council tax remaining the same. Our alternative budget provided for no council tax rise, more services not less and made more than the required savings in one year.
