Just three days until The Argus Council Tax Debate

The Argus: Just three days until The Argus Council Tax Debate Just three days until The Argus Council Tax Debate

We are now three days away from The Argus Council Tax Debate and readers are already sending questions to be used on the night.

Our event will be held at Hove Town Hall from 7pm on Thursday, when the city’s political leaders will answer the questions on this year’s contentious budget process.

Council leader Jason Kitcat, Conservative leader Geoffrey Theobald and Labour leader Warren Morgan have all confirmed they will be attending, and it is set to be a fiercely contested debate if Thursday’s lively council meeting was anything to go by.

The Argus has received more than 4,000 votes in our online poll and more than 150 postal entries on how readers would vote in the unlikely event the Green administration’s proposed 4.75% council tax should receive political support and spark a referendum. So far 1,261 readers have indicated they are in favour of the rise and 2,974 against any increase.

Reader questions are also being emailed to The Argus.

Things are really starting to heat up in the budget process and much could change come the Budget Policy and Resources Committee meeting on Thursday, February 13.

The final budget will be discussed and hammered out two weeks later at a full council meeting.

To send your questions for The Argus debate email neil.vowles@theargus.co.uk or post them to Neil Vowles, Argus House, Crowhurst Road, Brighton BN1 8AR.

Please include your name, address, which leader your question is addressed to, or all three.

If any questions are not answered on the night because of time constraints, The Argus will endeavour to get as many as possible answered after the debate.

Oh, how frightfully kind of you: I live in a coalmine with no internet access, so it's always a relief when my messenger pigeon brings me a print-off of my emails, ensuring I don't miss such articles. I assume you'll be doing this with all stories from now on, rather than just the ones which further the Argus's agenda?
