Tenbury Town Council are planning to set a zero percent increase in this years precept.
At the Finance and Staffing Group meeting tonight, final figures were entered into the various Town Council budgets that make up the precept, and subject to full Council approval, no overall increase will be requested.
Exactly how this has been achieved is unclear, as substantial additional costs have been budgeted for, such as £640 for a licence to continue to hold weddings at the Pump Rooms, and £1200 for edging of the Bowling Green. It was also unclear whether a further £900 would be required to licence the website for a further year.
CCTV is to be discussed by full Council, but no budget has been set as the Mayor is proposing to vote against the purchase.
