Harwich Town Council Freezes Council Tax
At a meeting of Harwich Town Council held on Wednesday 12th January the council unanimously supported a budget proposal that means that there will be no increase in Harwich Town Council’s precept for 2022-23.
The chair of the council’s Finance and General Purposes Committee, Cllr Pam Morrison, put forward the budget that will retain all of the council’s services and support for the local community at existing levels or above without any increase in council tax, an achievement that she believed was a credit to the manner in which Harwich Town Council is run.
Cllr Pam Morrison says
“We are proud of all that Harwich Town Council achieves and delivers on behalf of the local community and all of this results from a sensible and prudent approach to the council’s finances over many years. At a time when residents are facing tax rises they will not be asked for an additional penny from Harwich Town Council.”
The budget had been drawn up and put before a meeting of the council’s Finance and General Purposes committee and, having been approved by that committee, was put to the entire council for final ratification.
“This budget means that a Band D property will continue to pay 73 pence per week in council tax” continued Cllr Morrison. “When you look at all that Harwich Town Council delivers on behalf of the local community I believe that is very good value for money.”
