A council is proposing to freeze the amount of money it charges members of the public for the fifth year in a row.

Hertfordshire County Council, which receives 74p in every council tax pound, will vote later this month whether or not to raise its share of the levy.

Currently the county council, which has responsibility for schools, social care, fire and rescue and maintaining the county’s 3,000 miles of roads, takes £1,118.83 a year from Band D properties.

This amount will stay the same if councillors decide in favour of a freeze at the meeting on February 25.

The budget will also be on the agenda.

Members of the public are invited to attend the full council meeting, which starts at 10am in County Hall in Hertford.
