Humberside Fire Authority has agreed to increase the Council Tax precept by 1.6%

Council Tax precept 2017-18 update

At its meeting on Monday 13 February 2017, the Fire Authority discussed whether to increase the Council Tax precept for the year 2017-18 or to freeze it again at its current level. The Authority ran a six week public consultation during December and January asking for the public’s view on either a freeze or a 1.9% increase. Out of the 68 respondents, 74% indicated that they would be prepared to pay more for their fire cover.

Following a debate at Monday’s meeting, there was unanimous Authority support for an increase and a decision was made to raise the precept by 1.6%.
