At the Council’s December meeting, the draft budget and precept for 2019/20 was considered and the recommendations from the Finance and Administration received. Looking at the Council Tax calculations for a band D property, assuming that the Tax Base remained unchanged, the proposed precept to £68k would be a 1.49% increase or £1.34 yearly increase. The precepts for MSDC, WSCC and the Police were not yet confirmed. Members agreed the draft budget and to recommend a precept increase from £67,000 to £68,000. The draft budget will be viewed again at its next meeting on 5th February and the final budget will be approved at that meeting.
