Manchester City Council

B day

Not birthday celebrations or a diatribe on sanitary ware but something I have talked about before, the Council Budget.

Today the full Council meets to decide next years budget, the most important decision the Council makes in any given year, the one that has most impact on Manchester residents, and probably the one people know the least about other than of course the issue of Council Tax levels.

Talking about Council Tax, and Manchester has one of the lowest Council Tax levels in the country, budget council is rapidly followed by council tax bills landing through over 200,000 letter boxes. I'm not planning to go through the budget here but accompanying each bill is loads of information about what your money is spent on (although Council Tax only accounts for around 10% of the Council's annual expenditure) and if you want even more information you are entitled to ask and get a response.
