SIR - Having just received my council tax bill for the coming year, I was amazed to see an overall increase of 7 per cent. Having looked at the average rise of every other town in North Herts I worked it out to be 4.61 per cent with only two other towns creeping over a 5 per cent increase. Looking at my bill in more detail there is a 206.7 per cent increase in the parish section. How can they justify this kind of increase?
