The decision of the Conservatives on Hertfordshire County Council to increase Council Tax by almost 2% is in sharp contrast to the two Liberal Democrat run councils in Hertfordshire - namely Three Rivers and Watford - which have yet again frozen council tax - in the case of Three Rivers for the 10th year running.
Despite the public still being 'consulted' until 10 April on proposed changes to county-funded bus services, which could see 39 bus routes cut and all services after 7,30pm abolished, the ruling Conservatives at County Hall have decided to include the proposed savings in their budget for this year.
Street light repairs across Hertfordshire are managed in a way that would make the Mad Hatter look organised. Liberal Democrat County Councillors have been receiving emails stating that street lights would be repaired within 4 weeks when they knew full well that in a significant number of cases repairs had not been completed after 12 weeks or more.
I was surprised and disappointed by your online headline and opening sentence, which gives a misleading impression of my views on the bus cuts proposed by the Conservative run county council.
