UKIP councillors vote against council tax increase

We voted on next year's budget at tonight's Madeley Town Council. The proposed budget requires a 1.4% increase in council tax. Myself and Ryan Laing were the only two councillors who voted against the council tax increase.

The services the town council provides to the local community are really important, especially when Telford & Wrekin Council and the British government are cutting services. However, when 10,000 people in the borough - over 6% of the population of Telford & Wrekin - have received support from Telford Food Bank in less than two years, it's just not reasonable to put up council tax.
