Rate payers are spared tax increase
Rate payers in Hebden Royd will not see any rise in their precept in the next financial year.
The town council’s draft budget for 2013/2014 shows residents in a Band D property - the average - will continue to pay £72.89.
While the budget shows a drop in spending on Hebden Bridge Picture House - last year’s major expenditure - from £81,032 to £5,000, there are new projects councillors intend to spend money on.A total of £10,000 has been set aside for an apprentice scheme, £5,000 will be spent on a neighbourhood plan, £7,997 on ‘flexible projects’ and £3,000 for Mytholmroyd Station surveys.
The community funding budget remains at £75,000 and environmental renaissance is £20,000.
The budget was expected to be ratified at a full council meeting last night.
For a full budget break down and reaction from the meeting, see next week’s Hebden Bridge Times.
