South Wales Argus:
“COUNCIL tax in Monmouthshire looks set to increase by 4.95%, increasing the amount paid by those in a band D property to £1,241.76 a year.
And, following a tough round of budget discussions, the council is also proposing to introduce charges for children attending school-based breakfast clubs.
Concessionary bus fares for school children are also earmarked for an increase from £390 a year to £440 a year.
And it is likely that the cost of school meals will also be increased from £2.10 to £2.45.”
