Rutland County Council’s cabinet will meet next week to discuss the 2014/15 budget and make recommendations to full council.

Members of the cabinet are set to recommend that council tax should be frozen at £1,430.51 for a Band D property and that the minimum level of reserves should be set at £2m at the meeting on Tuesday.

The council’s budget for the year is £30,390,000.

Freezing council tax will result in a £208,000 Government grant. This sum would be the equivalent to a rise of one per cent.

Councillors will make a final decision on the budget at a meeting on February 10.
