Leader of RMBC Cllr. Chris Read gave details of the levels of Council Tax for the next financial year. This includes the new 2% Adult Social Care ‘precept’ encouraged by the government and included both the Police and Crime Commissioner’s and the Fire and Rescue Authority’s precepts as well as parish council precepts.
The Council Tax base (2016/17) for the whole Council Area is calculated on the total number of Band ‘D’ Equivalent Properties which is 67,149.57.
All the information and calculations can be found here: http://moderngov.rotherham.gov.uk/documents/g13365/Public%20reports%20pack%2020th-May-2016%2014.00%20Council%20Meeting.pdf?T=10 Pages 13 – 20.
