Otley Labour councillors to propose precept cut
Updated 6:27pm Monday 20th January 2014 in News
Otley householders could see their parish precept slashed by 17 per cent.
The big cut in the town council budget will be proposed by the Labour group – and follows a 25 per cent hike last year.
That increase saw band D householders paying an extra £14.30. Residents would see the precept fall close to its previous level if the budget is approved next week.
Councillor Carl Morris (Lab, Manor) said: “We’ve had some big projects recently but this budget is going to be more about consolidation and putting some money aside.”
