Safer York Partnership faces £75k shortfall
10:27am Monday 9th December 2013 in News
YORK’S community safety agency faces a £75,000 shortfall next year, it has been revealed.
Minutes of the last meeting of the Safer York Partnership show a cash gap for the current year has been plugged by the organisation dipping into its reserves, but warnings have been issued this cannot continue.
Director Jane Mowat listed a reduced grant from North Yorkshire Police and the end of an agreement with the partnership’s Selby counterpart among the reasons for the estimated shortfall.
It also now has to bear the costs of a hate crime prevention role which previously received one-off Home Office funding, and is receiving less year-on-year council funding.
The partnership's members have agreed costs need to be reduced in some areas. More details of how this may be done are expected to emerge after its next meeting.
The partnership’s board includes representatives from North Yorkshire Police, City of York Council and North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service.
