O yes, its the ol' Council Tax update. See how much the kind people of Blaenau Gwent Council will take from us all this year. Again, if you live in Tredegar, you pay more then any other area including Ebbw-Vale (and after 15 years of asking we have yet to receive an adequate answer why...). Council Tax Band "E" for Tredegar 2006









Council Tax Band "E" for Tredegar 2006

At least look on the bright side, the council's got a new logo - which they claim did not cost the tax payers any money. 
Good to see then that the graphics department in the Civic Centre works for nothing .....  Answer that one.....

Any comments, please post on the forum.
