MID and East Antrim Council have set the lowest rate increase in Northern Ireland, as predicted in Tuesday’s Ballymena Guardian.
A domestic rate increase of 1.74 percent was agreed.
Long serving DUP councillor Tommy Nicholl commented: “This is an increase of 16p per week which works out at just over £8 per household per year.
“This is the lowest domestic rate increase in Northern Ireland this year.”
