Budget narrowly passed at stormy council meeting

COUNCIL Tax for next year will be frozen, but housing rent will increase on average by £4 a week from 4th April, following Bassetlaw Council’s budget meeting.

The budget was narrowly pushed through with the chairman’s casting vote at the heated and often stormy meeting which ended at 10.30pm.
