Town Council Budget & Precept 2018/19   ()

Monday's Town Council meeting agreed its Budget for the coming financial year of 2018/19 and the related Precept.

The Budget predicts a total ependiture of £450,828 during the year with 70% coming from the local Precept and the remaining 30% from grants and income from Salisbury Gardens and the four Car Parks we manage.

This means a Precept increase of £15,09 a year for Band D households that will provide income totalling £323,354.

The increase - £42,931 over this year - is entirely due to two further services being dropped by the Isle of Wight Council and the development of Boniface Fields.

As always, we tested the proposed additions - £20,000 to continue our youth work following the Isle of Wight Council’s cutting of its Youth Offer funding, £20,000 for Boniface Fields and £7,500 to deal with the Isle of Wight Council’s service level changes for Ventnor Park from 1 January 2019 – at the Consultation Evening on 29 January and all were strongly supported.
