Wyre council tax freeze proposed
A local authority in Lancashire has proposed a council tax freeze for the coming year and pledged not to cut front line services.
Wyre Council claims it can tackle a £1.3m deficit by different ways of working behind the scenes.
Leader councillor Peter Gibson, said: "We know that these are tough times....but the Council Tax freeze will make things a little easier."
A senior management review has already identified £312,000 in annual savings.
Mr Gibson said the freeze, did not mean "services we provide direct to the Wyre public will suffer as a result".
He added: "What we have to do instead is learn how to provide more for less, but it's a challenge the whole council is ready to meet."
The council votes in March whether to freeze its portion of the council tax bill paid by Wyre residents - Lancashire County Council has already proposed freezing its portion of the council tax.
Residents are also being invited to complete a survey on spending priorities in the borough for the coming year.
