Council chiefs are taking advantage of a new government rule to announce a new tax increase to hit people in Potters Bar in April.
Hertsmere Borough Council had been intending to increase council tax bills by £3.12 a year in 2016/17 - the first rise in seven years.
But today, the authority announced it will increase its share of household council tax bills by £5 per year in the light of a provisional government settlement announced yesterday,
The increase is subject to approval by the cabinet on February 17, and full council on February 24.
