Council Tax Hike

survey, census, box ticking, form

Bucks County Council is currently seeking the views of its residents about the imminent rise in council tax and, bizarrely, the survey is asking for their views on proposed council tax increase options for next year: 2 per cent, 4 per cent or 5 per cent!

"How much tension would sir like applied during his next session on the rack"?

Less inanely, the survey also asks which council services residents value most. Your editor would like to think that this will inform the council's thinking on where *not* to cut funding — but who knows?!

Rail commuters beware:
Bucks County Councillors will be out and about at local train stations during next week, talking to early morning commuters about the residents' survey and encouraging people to take part.

If you'd like to show your appreciation for the excellent job they're doing, Margaret Aston has drawn the short straw on behalf of the County Council locally and will be at Haddenham & Thame Parkway station in her capacity as a Bucks County Councillor next Monday, 21st October.

The survey can be completed online here until the closing date of Monday 18th November. Paper copies are also available to pick up from Haddenham library and children's centre, plus other libraries, adult learning centres and County Council offices in Aylesbury and Wycombe.

Two survey respondents will be able to win one of two cash prizes of £100 each, to help offset their council tax bill.
