Council Tax Consultation

18th January 2011

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority (NYFRA) is inviting the public to give their views on the level of precept funding the Fire and Rescue Authority should be requesting as part of the council tax – 2011/12. Responses will be able to be provided through the completion of a simple online questionnaire or by post.

The Authority is consulting on options ranging from a 3.9% increase to no increase at all next year. The aim of the consultation exercise is to ask members of the public their views on  what level of council tax increase they would be prepared to support . The Authority must stress that it is not proposing any reductions in front line emergency services whatever council tax level is agreed.

The feedback from the consultation exercise will support the Authority when it considers a range of budget management options at its meeting on 9th February.

 For those members of the public that would wish to participate in the consultation exercise the questionnaire will be available online on the Authority’s website here  until Friday 28th January 2011. For those who do not have access to the internet, copies of the questionnaire can be posted out by calling 01609 780150.
