Ripon City Council has set a balanced budget for 2018/19.
The budget will allow for further continuation of the restructured grant initiatives started in 2016/17 which include both small grants and monies for working in partnerships with other organisations to help deliver improvements in the City.
Once again, the Council’s budget from April 2018 will include:
• £12,000 available for a small grant scheme
• £15,750 available for working with partnership organisations to deliver services in the City
• £15,000 as a strategic investment fund.
Monies will also be made available for a conservation restoration of the Cabmen’s Shelter on the Market Square.
The budget reflects a slight reduction in spend. In 2017/18 Ripon City Council received an amount of £11,604 in the form of a Council Tax Support Grant.
This funding stream has been withdrawn by Central Government which means that despite a slight reduction in budgeted spend the precept amount will result in a very small increase in the region of 3p per week in the on a Band D property.
Total funding of £300,253 has been applied for.
