MORE than �500,000 is owed to Welwyn Hatfield Council by debtors, many of whom are now being chased through the courts.
Council officers are working to recover the money, �364,000 of which has been owed for less than two months.
The debts are for unpaid car park season tickets, meals on wheels, leasehold rents and other incomes but do not include what is owed to the authority for council tax, rents or business rates.
At a cabinet meeting last Tuesday, councillors agreed due to the current economic climate debts should remain a high priority.
