Councillors set to discuss 25 per cent precept increase

Warrington Guardian: Councillors set to discuss 25 per cent precept increase Councillors set to discuss 25 per cent precept increase

RESIDENTS are being urged to attend Great Sankey Parish Council's meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, as councillors discuss a potential increase in the precept.

Clr Kevin Reynolds has said he is 'fully against' a 25 per cent increase and hopes homeowners in the Great Sankey area will attend the meeting. 

Currently the parish's precept is one of the lowest in the town at £20 a year and if approved would increase to £25 to pay for extra CSOs to work in the area, improve cleaner's zero hours contracts and for community centre refurbishment.

The meeting takes place at 6.45pm at the Tim Parry Community Centre, Wroxham Road.

In plain English, they want to put the parish tax up by a quarter.
Oddly, nowhere in the article does the word 'tax' appear.
