Dorset Council wants to increase the amount of council tax we pay for the next financial year, starting in April.
A band D property would pay around £85 more if the budget proposal is approved on Tuesday.
Cllr Gary Suttle explains why he believes this increase is necessary. Gary also reveals how Dorset Council has reduced an expected £42million budget shortfall to around £18million.
Your council tax bill could still increase further. The Police and Crime Commissioner wants to add £15 to fund more police.
