Richmondshire District Council is proposing to increase its share of the council tax by 2.42 per cent this year.
The authority’s corporate board this week agreed to increase it by £5 for a Band D property – to £211.40.
Councillor Yvonne Peacock, leader of the council, said: “The income from council tax underpins all our priorities and enables us to maintain the delivery of our services.
“However we have still managed to make savings – through efficiencies – in this time of continually reducing government grants.
“This keeps council tax at a low level and means we can keep the use of our reserves to a minimum.”
Corporate board members also approved a budget of £5,985,900 for 2018/19 – agreeing to use £18,150 from the council taxpayers reserve to support it.
Members of full council will consider the council tax level and budget on February 27.
