The Fire and Rescue Authority, like you, has faced increasing costs due to inflationary pressures. In particular we have seen cost increases on electricity, gas, vehicle fuel, supplies and pay impact on our budgets.
In order to assist in managing these cost increases, the Fire and Rescue Authority are currently planning our budget for next year and are considering a council tax increase of 2.99%, which would be £3.28 per year for a Band D property.
This would increase the band D council tax charge for your Fire and Rescue Service from £109.45 to £112.73 per year. Would you support the increase of 2.99% and invest in and protect your local Fire and Rescue Service?
