Hard working taxpayers have been dealt a 3.5% council tax increase by Bolton Council.
The massive, above inflation hike was strongly opposed by Lib Dems including Westhoughton councillor David Wilkinson.
It’s funny how Bolton’s Labour-run council hikes up your council tax bills in the year that there are no elections.
The coalition government offered councils an incentive NOT to raise council tax but greedy Labour bosses at Bolton Council couldn’t resist burdening cash-strapped locals with more expense.
David said: “It will be interesting to see if Labour decide to freeze the council tax next year instead when they we know we have an election and will be hoping for votes at the ballot box. “A lot of families are already struggling and this is just going to make matters worse.”
