It means householders in bands A D will not see any change to their council tax bill for a 10th successive year. Residents in the area's 27,000 properties vintage louis vuitton purses ebay banded from E H will see their bills increase by between and per year as a result of national changes to the council tax multiplier previously announced by the Scottish Government.The ruling Labour group's budget also included the reversal of the hugely unpopular per week charge for community alarms used by elderly and vulnerable residents, controversially introduced last August.Airdrie Central representative Councillor Logue said: "There has been much speculation about the council's ability to raise council tax by up to louis vuitton bracelet uk three per cent; however, the Scottish Government has already increased substantially the amount people in Bands E to H will pay, with bills being hiked by 7.5 per cent to 22.5 per cent."We are not prepared to put more pressure on struggling families, so there will be no council imposed increase. I'm determined we do all we can to avoid passing on Scottish Government budget cuts to our residents, and we have managed to achieve that, minimising the impact on our communities following an unjust cut to our budget."This is a budget which invests where it is needed most more money for vulnerable older adults, young adults with complex needs, and to head teachers to determine expenditure according to the specific needs of the communities they serve and while it requires us to find savings of million, we are able to guarantee there will be no compulsory job losses."Addressing the budget meeting, he had announced the council level tax freeze by saying: "This administration cannot, in all conscience, compound [the multiplier rise] any further."He added: "This council louis vuitton alma image has repeatedly articulated the need for a grown up conversation about council tax. Since 2007, the SNP have called it an unfair tax; now, 10 years later, they've done nothing about it."SNP opposition group leader David Stocks responded: "The attacks from Jim Logue this year are no differnt to previous budgets in saying the Scottish Government is to blame at least his predecessor admitted that the biggest problem is from Westminster, and that's where these emanate from.
