Rate rise in PSM

Needed to balance the books, say commissioners

Port St Mary rates are going up by three per cent.


Commissioners have agreed they’ll rise to 315 pence in the pound from 1 April.


It’s the first increase in the village for several years.


Vice Chairman Rich Ashcroft said a hike was needed to ‘balance the books’, given staffing costs, and waste disposal charges continuing to rise with inflation.
