Dundee City Council will receive an extra £4.44 million funding under the revised budget proposals unveiled by Finance Secretary Derek Mackay.
The budget boost comes as the Scottish Government confirmed that local government will receive an above inflation increase in resource funding.
The SNP budget will give Scots the best deal in the UK – with investment in public services and a tax cut for lower earners.
Under the progressive tax reforms 70% of taxpayers will pay less than last year, while higher earners will face a modest increase.
These tax changes will allow the Scottish Government to increase health spending by £400 million to £13.6 billion, lift the public sector pay cap and provide a package of investment in the economy.
Commenting, MSP for Dundee City East, Shona Robison said:
“The draft budget shows that where Scotland has the power, the SNP will take a different, fairer approach – and give Scots the best deal in the UK.
“Thanks to the decisions made by the Scottish Government, local government funding is increasing by inflation and today Dundee City Council have been given an extra £4.44m to spend on local services.
MSP for Dundee City West, Joe FitzPatrick MSP added:
“It’s a good deal for taxpayers and for public services in Dundee – and is only possible because of the SNP’s progressive tax reforms, that are backed by the public by 2 to 1.
“In the face of massive Westminster cuts, the Scottish Government is using its powers progressively to invest in our schools and our hospitals – and in communities across Dundee.”
