Editor, Townsman:

Andover's two large proposed debt bonds have been in the news recently.

But there has not been a word from the town manager or the Select Board about compensatory budget cuts to constrain our resulting tax rate hike to within the inflation rate or, indeed, any limit whatsoever.

So, considering the splendid spending spree we have come to expect annually, and adding to it the huge bond payments, how much will our tax rate jump -- 4%, 6% or maybe 8%?

Does anybody know?
