Rate rise in southern village

The village rate in Port St Mary is to rise by three pence to 300p in the pound for the coming financial year.

Chairman of the board Robbie Cooil made the announcement at a public meeting last night (Wednesday).

He said, despite increased costs and reduced funding from government, the rise was only one per cent.

Mr Cooil added the budget still allowed for investment in a number of schemes.
