Surrey County Council's Cabinet is to meet later today to consider a proposal to raise council tax for the next financial year by 1.99%.
The Council says the increase would allow for greater investment in schools, roads and care for vulnerable people.
Members will also discuss rejecting the Government's offer of introducing a freeze on council tax for the county. According to the council if the authority took up the offer, it would lead to a black hole of £50 million - equivalent to the loss of the road maintenance bill for around three years.
The proposals will go before the full council at a meeting next week.
