East Yorkshire council tax bills frozen

York Press: East Yorkshire council tax bills frozen East Yorkshire council tax bills frozen

COUNCIL tax bills in East Yorkshire will be frozen for the fourth year running after councillors agreed plans to save £23.7 million next year.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council said it would still spend £23 million on services and £117 million on infrastructure schemes in 2014/15, as its budget was set during a meeting yesterday.

An extra £2.25 million will be reserved for road repairs and flood defences, with council leader Stephen Parnaby saying: “By adopting a planned approach and focusing on priorities, we continue to provide good services, meet new demands and manage budget reductions in a way which avoids the knee-jerk response to funding cuts common in many other areas.”
