Letters: Stop overcharging those who actually PAY their council tax


In response to the letter published yesterday (Monday):

Read: Letters: Bedford Borough Council should give everyone a refund

Totally agree – the “democratically elected council” should stop overcharging the people who actually PAY their Council Tax (rather than the “users”) and refund it!

Time for things to change and stop providing the “ Overspill People” from leaching off the long-term inhabitants.
