20 February (Part 2) - Another Council tax rise approved. Up by 3.99% again

Council tax upBexley Council’s Cabinet approved a local rate rise of 3·99% this evening, 1% less than the legal maximum available to them. The final figure shown on bills will be varied very slightly by the amount imposed by the robber baron in City Hall.

Cabinet hands were raised rather limply as if no one was very enthusiastic about it.

Bexley is so far behind its nearest ‘rival’ in the Council Tax League Tables that even if that rival (Enfield) raised its tax rate by the maximum 5% Bexley wouldn’t improve on its lowly position in the table and rise above the place occupied by Labour in 2006.

They constantly malign the previous administration but the Conservatives have not managed to improve on their taxation record at all.
