How the Council is Funded
Each year Minera Community Council sets itself a budget. Based on this planned expenditure, the Community Council receives an amount from Wrexham County Borough - the Precept.
The Precept is made up of a grant from the County Borough, based on the size of the community, and a levy added to Council Tax, based on what the Community Council requests to fund itself.
Minera Community Council budget is closely managed, and we make one of the smallest levies on the council tax payers of our community of any within Wrexham County Borough.
The budget is used for a variety of activities and projects - see "What the Council does". We also try to maximise the budget by use of grants, many of which are match funded, and gifts in kind from local companies, to complete projects.
BREAKING NEWS 2020-2021 BUDGET : REDUCTION IN PRECEPT ...
Minera Community Council has set a precept for 2020/21 which shows a reduction of £6,080 on the previous year. We are pleased to have been able to fund our responsibilities and services to the communities of the Minera ward, including repayment of the appropriate element of the five year loan taken out to renew our streetlights, while simultaneously reducing the financial burden on local residents. We also intend to invest further in our community facilities in the year ahead, following on from the improvements in streetlighting and the Minera playground which have been delivered this year.
