This year’s budget shows a decrease in the amount of precept requested from the taxpayer of Penryn, with the relocation of the Council offices to the library and the completion of the Clock Tower Project the Town Council has managed to make significant savings.
The ownership of the bus stops within the Parish which the Town Council currently maintains will be transferred to Cornwall Council who are hoping to install digital timetables.
The running/maintenance of the Public Toilets on Exchequer Quay will also be taken over by the Harbour Commissioner’s Office with the Permarin Car Park toilets remaining under the control of the Town Council.
Projects for 2018 to 2019 include the exterior decoration of the library and the internal redecoration of the Temperance Hall.
The budget also includes the running of Penryn Museum and subsidising the halls ensuring a very reasonable rate can be charged to residents and community groups.
The Town Council also maintains footpaths and verges, Doorstep Green in Glasney Valley, benches and floral displays.
