Billingham Town Council Finances

In the February edition of the Community Newspaper we gave a breakdown of the increase in the precept for 2013-14. This amounted to between £1.50 and £2.75, per household, per year, which equates to between 3p and 5p per week, depending upon the council tax band of the property.
