£84,000 debts written off
Ashford Borough Council has agreed to write off debts of more than £84,000.
The unpaid and uncollectable debts including unpaid council tax (10%), overpaid housing benefit (60%) and unpaid business rates (40%). The total figure was £84,921.
Portfolio holder Cllr Neil Shorter (Con) said: “The writeoffs are clearly debts that are not going to be paid. It’s really not sensible to spend time and money to pursue them.”
