Council tax freeze set to continue in East Riding
Council tax bills from East Riding Council are set to be frozen for the third successive year.
Council leader Councillor Stephen Parnaby confirmed he intended to propose a continued freeze from next April.
"We will be accepting the grant being offered by the Government allowing us to freeze our part of the council tax for another year," he said.
"The grant does not cover it 100 per cent but we will be able to meet the shortfall from our own reserves."

Cllr Parnaby said officials in the council's finance section were still examining details from the local government settlement announced just before Christmas by communities secretary Eric Pickles.
The settlement includes the main annual grant funding for each local authority in England and Wales.
Cllr Parnaby said: "We are facing a reduction in funding which is not good news but we are where we are.
"It will not be easy but we have demonstrated that we can deliver savings in recent years."
