Rutland County Council to consider 2.99% council tax rise and plugging funding gap with £2.6m of reserves

Rutland County’s Council’s cabinet is considering a tax hike of 2.99 per cent.

The cabinet will meetvirtually on Tuesday to discuss the draft budget for 2021/22 and the council says it has received “lower than expected” financial support from the Government, which it needs to balance against lower income and higer costs.

The Government allows the council to put tax up by 5 per cent but instead the council is considering an increase of 2.99 per cent and using £2.6m from its reserves to balance the budget.
