COPELAND Council is set to put a freeze on any council tax increase for the next year – but there will be a price to pay with more severe cuts over the next two.
Have your say
I take it that the councillors will not be accepting any expenses as a sign that they are doing their bit in these stringent, economic times. Surprisingly, they can use reformed bankers as their model, or will they continue to use MPs expenses as their model? Answer from 'the leader' will be good, not expected though. I wonder why?
Heres a thought - why dont the council put a stop to wasting money ? They seem to be very good at spending ( wasting ) the tax payers money on things that dont matter - new stadium, Haig Museum, those things that most tax payers dont benefit from !!! Spend some money on tidying up the town, making it more appealing rather than fleecing the funds for the minority ! How about sorting the roads for a start - they are an absolute disgrace !
If the council can freeze the council tax and warn of cuts, does the same apply to workers when they have a pay freeze - can they reduce the amount of work they are willing to carry out?
