Midweek Visiter - - News -

SEFTON Coun­cil is yet again the best per­form­ing Mersey­side lo­cal au­thor­ity for the col­lec­tion of Coun­cil Tax.

Fig­ures re­leased by the Min­istry of Hous­ing, Com­mu­ni­ties and Lo­cal Govern­ment show Sefton con­tin­ues to out­per­form neigh­bour­ing au­thor­i­ties in the Liver­pool City Re­gion for col­lec­tion of Coun­cil Tax and Na­tional Non-Do­mes­tic Rates.

The an­nual col­lec­tion rate for 2017/18 showed a Coun­cil Tax col­lec­tion rate of 96.3%, while Busi­ness Rates was 98.7%. Coun­cil­lor Paulette Lap­pin said: “These fig­ures will pro­vide re­as­sur­ance to res­i­dents that we are max­imis­ing our rev­enue to keep Coun­cil Tax down.”
