3.5% Council Tax Hike for Prestonians

by johnpotter on 9 April, 2012

Despite calls for restraint, the ruling Labour group on Preston City Council has decided to reject the Government money and will raise council tax by 3.5%.

Cadley resident and Lib Dem Councillor John Potter said, “It’s the wrong tax at the wrong time. The majority of councils are freezing council tax because families are really struggling.”

Cllr Potter added, “The Labour group shouldn’t be raising council tax to cover up the big decisions they have to make to sort out the financial black hole in the Council’s budget.”
