Council Tax Freeze for Cornwall
2:32pm 21st February 2012
Cornwall's Council Tax bill is frozen.
Officials have decided not to ask us for more money this year.
But there are fears taking extra government cash now could mean more rises in the future.
The agreed budget also includes £40 million in cuts.
These shoppers in Pool are sceptical.
One said: "I think it's beneficial at the moment, but invariably when you get something paid in one way, it's claimed back in another."
This lady adds: "I find it really hard at the minute. The fact is, it's good this year but obviously we'll pay for it in the future."
This man is worried bills could be hiked later: "What's the future going to be? Are they going to want more in a couple of year's time, like a big jump?"
