Surprise at overall rise of council tax

Dear Sir, — I read with interest the letters from Paul Duffy and Michael Knowles in respect of the increase in the Cheshire East Council (Cheshire East Council) tax for the year 2019/20; I too was most surprised at the overall increase of 4% since I was expecting this to be around 3% as had been widely advertised. 
However, I looked into the analysis of this and my observation and the change in our bill is as follows. 
The Cheshire East portion has increased by 3.2%, although our bill shows 3%, perhaps someone at Cheshire East should check this.
