Coun­cil plea over fund­ing

The Scarborough Evening News - - NEWS -

North York­shire County Coun­cil is re­new­ing its call on the gov­ern­ment to give long-term fairer fund­ing to large ru­ral coun­ties such as North York­shire fol­low­ing this year’s fi­nan­cial set­tle­ment. The set­tle­ment presents the county coun­cil with a dif­fi­cult choice – to take the gov­ern­ment’s of­fer of in­creas­ing coun­cil tax by a fur­ther one per cent or make fur­ther cuts which will im­pact on front­line ser­vices. The gov­ern­ment has given lo­cal coun­cils the op­por­tu­nity for an ad­di­tional in­crease of 1 per cent on coun­cil tax.
