A petition for redress of grievance is the topic for consideration by a special meeting of Douglas Borough Council this week.

The petition from David Buttery was presented to Tynwald in July 2009 on the subject of replacing the current domestic rating system with a fair local services tax.

Councillors will be considering a report on the matter produced by the borough treasurer. The report was compiled at the request of the deputy clerk of Tynwald. The report will then be put forward for consideration by a special committee of Tynwald appointed to consider and report back on the petition. The meeting will be on Friday, April 25, in the council chambers at Douglas town hall.
