Residents living in Downham Market will have their council tax precept increased by 2pc this financial year - the equivalent of around £2 per household.
Town councillors voted in favour of the increase at the last full council meeting.
Charlie Pyatt, chair of the finance committee, said: 'Households paying £87 this year will be contributing £89 next year as part of their contribution to the precept.
'We've taken into account the needs of various committees and have budgeted this next financial year accordingly - it is very cost-effective.'
He added that it will go towards renovations at the Town Hall as well as various other community services and events organised through the town council.
