No tax increase in Kristianstad – to take from municipal treasury
In total, around 8 billion crowns will be allocated to municipal boards and governing bodies in 2024. This will take place without an increase in tax.
– Taxes should not increase when there is a rise in the cost of living, says Ian Fernheden (SD).
The board has therefore committed itself to zero profitability, which means moving away from the goal of achieving 1-2 per cent of the total revenue.
An additional measure that is being taken to finance this is to take 22 million crowns from Kristianstad's municipal company. It is the parent company of ABK and C4 Energi, among others.
The Health and Social Care Committee will receive an extra 33 million crowns. This includes an investment of 11 million to complete the “äldreomsorgslyftet” – a government initiative to increase training in health and social care
