COUNCILLORS at Rutland County Council have voted to accept a council tax freeze for 2012/13.

The council met last night (Monday) to discuss the council budget for the next 12 months.

As well as agreeing the tax freeze, councillors also agreed to increase the minimum level of council reserves to £2m during the lifetime of the current medium term financial plan.

Speaking during the meeting, Rutland County Council leader Roger Begy (Con) said: “These are hard times for many people and it’s important they receive our support as the country sees itself through these very tough financial times.”
