For 2014, we have frozen council tax levels again. This means that the amount of council tax you pay to Staffordshire County Council continues to be the lowest in the country. Not only will this help to keep the cost of your daily living down, but it means you get the very best value from the council tax you pay.
This year we continue to invest our budget in the areas that you’ve told us are important to you: access to good quality jobs and to feel safe, healthy and enjoy life. We are clear that we need to put every penny of our taxpayers’ money into the things which really matter to you and make a difference to your lives.
We are proud of Staffordshire and that’s why we want to do all that we can to make the county a better place to live. Part of this is about making sure we listen to you and how you think we can shape the future when so much around us is changing, which is why we’ve introduced more ways for you contact us. Your views are important to us and we always welcome your comments and suggestions. Do get in touch!
