Referendum Support in Wallingford

Good news for those of us who support a referendum on the level of Council Tax. At last night’s Wallingford consultation meeting more than 90% of those who voted supported a referendum.

Some people were unhappy with the £800,000 that a referendum will cost, but this- if successful -will elicit £38,000,000 in extra council tax.

It is worth noting that the £800,000 will include the cost of sending out the Council Tax bills, the referendum itself AND dispatching a second bill if the vote is lost. Government insists that this is how the process is carried out.
