Dorset residents to enjoy council tax freeze
10:15am Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
DORSET COUNTY Council is set to freeze its share of the council tax for a third year running.
Members of the authority’s cabinet will be asked to recommend that the council tax remains at its current level for the 2013/14 financial year.
A report prepared for members by chief financial officer Paul Kent states that the move will see the council receive a £2.036m freeze grant from central Government.
The current charge for a mid range Band D property is £1,168.29.
A final decision on the council tax and the rest of the authority’s budget will be taken at a full council meeting on February 14.
