Sutton Council announces plans to freeze council tax for fourth year
Council Tax is to remain the same for the fourth year running. Sutton Council has announced it is to freeze the tax subject to approval by Full Council on 4 March.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Ruth Dombey, said: "We are very aware that prices are rising faster than incomes and residents are finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet.
"So we looked closely at how we can cut costs and work more efficiently and still provide the excellent services residents expect without raising Council Tax. And I’m pleased to say we have managed that for the fourth consecutive year."
The proposal to freeze Council tax will be discussed at the Strategy and Resources Committee meeting on Monday 11 February and a final decision will be reached at Full Council on 4 March.
