January PC Meeting Moved To Thurs 12th 2017 Click on photo for full frame
The Parish Council Meeting of the 5th Jan 2017 has been moved to Thurs 12th Jan, at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. The village wassailing is on Thursday 5th, 2017.
The councillors will be setting the precept for 2017/18 at this meeting. This includes budgeting for the next year.
You are most welcome to attend.
Parish councils draw their funds from the council tax paid by residents of the parish. A small portion of the council tax goes to the PC, these funds are known as the precept.
Parish councils must hold insurance, have a paid clerk and pay for their accounts to be audited, paid from the precept. What remains of the precept can be used to fund local amenities which fall into the categories listed above, or within strict financial limits, they can also spend on anything which will be, in the PC's opinion, in the interests of the parish. In practice, Curry Rivel tries to keep its precept as low as practically possible which means that there are only limited funds available to spend on specific projects.
