Council tax freeze in Princes Risborough

Bucks Free Press: Princes Risborough Princes Risborough

FOR the fourth year running Princes Risborough Town Council will not raise council tax.

At last night's monthly town council meeting it was decided to keep its council tax precept the same for 2013/14.

With the grant from Wycombe District Council likely to go down in the following years Cllr Alan Turner warned that things will get harder.

But he said: "I am really quite proud of the council in many ways.

"We are one step ahead of the game in lots of areas."

He said by bringing the maintenance duties in house the council has already saved a lot of money and means the council can go out there and sell itself as a council.

Incidentally this is the first laudable thing they have done for quite a while

The town council keep telling us they have saved a lot of money because of the in house maintenance, so why do we still have the highest town/parish council tax in the district. They should be reducing our tax.
