Budget ‘to benefit all residents’
9:11am Thursday 16th January 2014 in News
Otley’s Liberal Democrat town councillors will propose an alternative budget “to benefit all residents” next week.
The council’s controlling Labour group budget will be proposed on Monday and includes a 17 per cent reduction in the precept.
That follows a 25 per cent precept increase last year that was blasted by the opposition Lib-Dem group, who said it demonstrated “profligate spending”.
Lib-Dem leader Councillor Jim Spencer (West Chevin), will put forward his own party’s budgetary plans on Monday.
