Council tax to rise by twice inflation rate

This year's round of Council Tax rises look like coming out at twice the inflation rate. Following last week's 5% rise by Surrey County Council, the Surrey Police Authority have now confirmed a 5.8% increase in their share of the total tax burden. Next week Epsom & Ewell Borough Council will be considering a recommended increase of 4.9%, which if approved will bring the overall tax rise for residents to almost 5.1% compared to last year. This is double the current inflation rate of around 2.5%.

Yo-Yo drop-in centre at risk

Liberal Democrat campaigner Julie Morris is outraged that the service cuts proposed under Tory-controlled Surrey County Council's Business Delivery Review (BDR) include not only Ewell Court Library, but also the Yo-Yo "drop-in" centre for young people in Epsom town centre. She said: "I simply cannot believe they are considering this as an option. Youth services are already under-funded and they should be improving things rather than making cuts. Epsom town centre is already full of young people with nothing to do in the evenings. Do we want more on the streets bored, involved in misdemeanours and taking up police time?"

Lindsey stands down

Sadly we have to report that Councillor Lindsey Fisk has decided to stand down as a councillor for Town ward with immediate effect. Addressing Town ward residents through their Focus newsletter, she says: "I have taken the difficult decision to resign as your local councillor. Unfortunately, I feel I am no longer able to put the time, energy and commitment into the work that is required and I am a person who never wants to do a job half-heartedly! May I just add a personal thank you to all those who have sent me their good wishes during this time. I hope that I may be able to return as your councillor at some time in the future".

SCC Budget 2003

Surrey County Council has increased its share of council tax for 2003-2004 by 17.9%. Cllr. Janet Maines, Lib Dem group leader said: "This Tory-run County Council has got to move away from crisis management, with its ever spiralling costs, by investing in preventative measures that are good value for money and that better meet the needs of Surrey residents".
