  (9) Precept                        
    The precept should be set at a level that at least balances the budget or provides a small surplus to cover unbudgeted items    
    that may arise. It is also prudent to increase the Precept as the level of prepcept increases in the future may be capped        
    and as more costs are pushed down from NDC to local parishes we need to ensure that we are prepared for the future.
