Silsden Town Council to reduce precept
8:00am Saturday 15th February 2014 in News
Silsden town councillors have voted unanimously to reduce their council tax precept.
People living in Band D properties will pay £17.17 in the next financial year, as opposed to £17.66 this year. The reduction follows an increase of £4.10 in 2013 to give the council a contingency fund in case of by-elections.
Mayor Chris Atkinson said: “It’s important the town council is in a position to react if there is a need to protect services, but we are mindful of the cost of living.”
