The Nottinghamshire and City of Nottingham Fire Authority has set a Council Tax increase of 1.95 per cent – an annual rise of £1.44 for those living in a Band D property.
The decision was made at a meeting of the Fire Authority at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS) Headquarters today (Friday 24 February).
Councillor Darrell Pulk, Chair of the Fire Authority, said: "Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service works hard to ensure that all residents in the city and county are kept safe from fire and other incidents, and we are very proud of the service provided, whether responding to incidents or working with local communities to provide advice and support.
"This increase means that most council tax-paying households – those in bands A and B - will see an annual increase of 96 pence and £1.12 respectively, which the authority believes offers good value to residents. It will help us to continue our vital work to create safer communities, while helping to maintain a modern, effective and efficient public service."
