We would like your views on these proposals.

If you would like to give us feedback, please email CAO.ServiceInformation@northyorksfire.gov.uk, visit our Facebook page North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service, or find us on Twitter @NorthYorksFire by Friday 6th Feb 2016.

A full copy of the budget report considered by the Fire Authority in December is available on our website here.

Ian Young Director of Finance and Technical Services said:  “Although the Authority continues to make savings, some £900,000 for next year, and we have yet to receive final numbers from Central Government on reductions in Government financial support, the Authority cannot rule out seeking an increase in Council Tax. We would welcome comments from members of the public on the Budget report and what level of council tax increase they would be prepared to support. The feedback we receive will assist the Authority when it considers the final budget report at its meeting in February.”
