Tett: Coun­cil tax is al­ready too high

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

RE: Road re­pairs to be axed in £28m cuts? (Ad­ver­tiser, Oc­to­ber 23) THE coun­cil leader’s re­marks, as re­ported, make for an im­pres­sive front page but seem to miss the fact that a large pro­por­tion of the res­i­dents in his area sim­ply can­not pay more from their in­ad­e­quate pen­sion in­come.

Why does he not start with a close look at se­nior staff pen­sions ver­sus in­put and in­vite his peo­ple to sug­gest changes to ac­com­mo­date the fund­ing of ne­ces­si­ties.

The coun­cil tax is al­ready much too high at £2,200 a year for a two-bed­room flat, and should be the sub­ject of care­ful scru­tiny.
