11:15pm Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
COUNCIL tax bills in Bury are to rise by 3.5 per cent. The increase is the first for three years and on is a par with some other Greater Manchester authorities. Bury Council’s annual budget meeting held tonight (Wed) also approved a rents rise averaging 4.1 per cent for Six Town Housing tenants as well as savings of £10 million during the next financial year. However, part of the council ranger service will be saved with two posts being retained. Previous proposals had threatened the loss of eight positions.
