Council tax precept 2019-20

Members of the public are being invited to have their say on what the Humberside Fire and Rescue Service (HFRS) council tax precept should be for 2019-20. 

Residents in North and North East Lincolnshire, the East Riding of Yorkshire and Kingston Upon Hull are being asked if they are prepared to pay 20p per month extra on a Band D property for their Fire and Rescue Service, residents may pay less and any increase won’t be more than 40p per month for the highest rated properties.

 What would the additional funding from the council tax precept increase translate into?
 A Full-Time fire engine and crew costs £1.15m per year, a 2 fire engine On-Call fire station costs £360k per year, 10 Safety Advocates cost £260k per year and 10 Support roles cost £260k per year. Without the additional funding, we would need to make reductions to the service that you currently receive.
