A third year’s freeze on council tax was approved today by councillors in North Yorkshire (20 February 2013)
Members of the Council supported a recommendation from the Executive to accept a grant equivalent to a one per cent council tax rise in return for a freeze. For North Yorkshire, this amounts to £2.2m.
County Councillor John Weighell, the Leader of the Council and Chairman of the Executive said:
We know that many households are struggling financially.
That is why we are pleased to be able to freeze council tax for the third year in succession. This will have saved the average household £95 over the three years.
