86 Council Tax Resolutions (Report to follow) PDF 200 KB
The Head of Financial and Customer Services presented the Council Tax Resolutions for the Executive Committee’s consideration. Members were advised that the report detailed the Council Tax calculations for the Council and the other precepting authorities.
The Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority had not yet held a meeting to determine their requirements and therefore assumptions had had to be made in the report about the contribution to that organisation. Delegated authority had been requested for Officers to be able to amend the resolutions should the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority agree a position that differed from the assumptions detailed in the report.
During consideration of this item reference was made to the late notice that had been provided to Members in respect of the report, with publication having occurred on the day of the meeting. The Chief Executive explained that this delay was not caused by Council Officers but as a consequence of the precepting authorities communicating their position to the Council at a late stage. Members who served on the Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority were urged to raise the timing of their meetings with the authority to ensure that in future the Council could receive reports in respect of the Council Tax Resolutions in a timely manner.
