Views sought on Fire and Rescue Authority's budget
8:33am Wednesday 23rd January 2013 in News
THE public are being asked their views on how North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority should fund its lifesaving activities in 2013/14.
The authority will hold its budget meeting on February 13. It will look at freezing its part of the council tax or raising it by up to two per cent.
Currently, York and North Yorkshire households in council tax band D pay £62.10 a year to the fire service and would pay an extra £1.24 with a two per cent rise.
Residents wanting to join in the consultation can do so by emailing CAO.ServiceInformation@northyorksfire.gov.uk, or by visiting the authority’s Facebook page North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service or Twitter account @NorthYorksFire by January 31.
The agenda and reports for the meeting are available on the authority’s website northyorkshire.gov.uk
