Council Tax will increase 4.8% this year and more local services will be cut.  That’s despite Powys County Council getting a £9.5 million cash increase from the Welsh Government.

At the Council’s budget meeting held in County Hall on Friday, Matthew Dorrance told the Council that he would not be supporting a budget that cut more money from education and threatened services like y Gaer or Brecon’s public toilets.

Matthew said: “The Council has had a significant cash increase totalling £9.5 million from the Welsh Government this year.  That money should be used to protect local services and keep Council Tax down.

“I couldn’t vote for a budget that will cut to services in Brecon so I used my voice and my vote to oppose it.”
