Small tax rise agreed by Clevedon Town Council

PUBLISHED: 16:24 26 February 2017


Clevedon Town Council has voted to ask the public to pay an extra penny a week to help fund public services.

The small precept rise will be factored into next financial year’s council tax bills, along with rises agreed by the emergency services and North Somerset council.

The chairman of the town council’s finance committee Carl Francis-Pester said: “By keeping a tight control on the council’s expenditure we are pleased to keep the increase so low especially considering the increased staff hours agreed earlier in the year to cover additional duties covered by the council and the effect of pension auto-enrolment.”
