Hunstanton town council faces rent payment halt questions
A town council has faced questions on whether its decision to halt rent payments during the coronavirus crisis was a suitable use of public money.
The issue was raised during a meeting of Hunstanton's town council on Thursday after Mike Ruston, the chairman of its finance committee, defended the decision to raise the amount it charges in council tax.
The meeting heard that total raised for town council services, known as the precept, increased by £20,000 this year, to £180,000.
