Kidsgrove Town Council last week voted to freeze their proportion of the council tax which Kidsgrove residents will pay for the coming year.
Kidsgrove Town Council is only responsible for a handful of services which Kidsgrove residents experience with Newcastle Borough Council and Staffordshire County Council being the main service providers. The final council tax bill which Kidsgrove residents will face will be a combined bill for all services, including Staffordshire Police and Fire Service. If all of the above choose not to ask for an increase, then the overall council tax bill for Kidsgrove residents will remain the same as this year.
This is a welcome move by Kidsgrove Town Council and one that many residents would have no doubt expected.
