Council tax is often controversial. But without it the expense of fixing the roads, running the schools and providing a long list of essential services would be impossible.
Many issues which are brought to me by anxious constituents would be better raised first with their local councillors. Council housing, holes-in-the road, broken paving stones, blocked drains, faulty street lights – these are the kind of everyday problems which are usually the responsibility of your local council. It is always best to contact your own councillor and call me in only if you hit a bottle-neck.
