Budget Forecast and precept for next financial year
The draft budget forecast was presented to the members and following discussion it was agreed to increase the precept by 5% making a precept total of £57,679.65
Following a discussion on the future use of technology, it was decided to purchase tablets for the use of councillors in meetings. This satisfies the movement towards the reduction of the use of paper and prinitng in the work of the Council, and enables remote working should a Councillor be absent from a meeting via zoom or equivalent. This was accepted, subject to approval by full Council.
