Budget proposals to be discussed at Full Council this week
Residents are encouraged to join Weymouth Town Council’s first Full Council meeting of the year later this week.
The online meeting takes place on Wednesday 12th January and the main item to be discussed and agreed is the draft budget and council tax rates.
Councillors will debate a recommendation for a 0 per cent increase to the precept for 2022/23. If approved, it means that Weymouth Town Council will be charging the same amount per household via the council tax bill.
That would mean the average Band D property would continue to pay £185.69 a year.
Weymouth Town Council provides a number of services, many which are unique to the town, including the award-winning beach that attracts more than a million visitors each year, nine public toilet buildings, 33 parks and open spaces, 353 allotments, nine cemeteries, numerous public events including Armed Forces weekend, as well as maintaining the town’s memorials and monuments.
Other items on the agenda include an opportunity for members of the public to ask a question, plans to introduce a Single Use Plastic policy, and the town council’s response to Dorset Council’s Air Quality Action Plan.

The meeting will be streamed on Weymouth Town Council’s Facebook page from 7pm, Wednesday 12th January.
Questions from members of the public can be submitted in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am on Tuesday 11th January.
