Council set to agree budget and Council Tax for 2012/2013

The County Council will be meeting this Tuesday 7th February to debate the Council’s ‘strategic delivery framework’ and agree the budget and council tax for the coming financial year.

The whole meeting is open to the public, and will start at 10.00am at Shire Hall, Warwick.

The proposed budget and papers for the meeting can be found here: Council Agenda and Reports – 7th February 2012 (pdf)

The Council’s Cabinet has recommended that the County Council freeze council tax this year. If this is agreed, the Council will be eligible for a central government grant of up to £5.859million to help fund services, without increasing Council Tax.

All Councillors will be debating this proposal and will be able to suggest changes before the budget is agreed by the Council.
