Based on the lack of activity by the councils in the last year we ought to be getting a reduction for this year and a rebate for last years pathetic efforts. Oh I forgot they need the extra to top up their salary increases and pensions....silly me. In a fair and just society run by councils and a democratically elected government in a far, far distant Galaxy you would see costs going down, ...
