On 7 February 2019 all 67 ERYC Councillors will be asked to vote for a Council Tax increase for 2019/2020. Yet they are unable to do this as Alan Menzies, ERYC Director of Planning and Economic Development has failed to answer fundamental questions.
These involve the sale of the Bridlington Golf Club:
- How much is the agreed sale price?
- Was the sale offered via an “open market”?
The answers to these questions could prove that the “loss” on this one transaction could equate to at least a 1% increase on the Council Tax.
As such without this information all Councillors must reject the Council Tax increase.
I have requested answers from Alan Menzies to these simple questions.
