COUNCIL tax payers in Stafford and Stone will see no rise in the fire service precept next year as Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Authority has agreed to freeze it.

Band D council tax payers will continue to pay £1.30 per week towards the fire and rescue service, an annual contribution of £67.64.

The police and county council are also planning to freeze their portions, while Stafford Borough Council has proposed reducing its rates.
