North Yorkshire’s Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner is asking for your views on the amount to be invested in local policing and fire and rescue services from your council tax bill next year.

One of Julia Mulligan’s responsibilities is to set the precept – the amount dedicated to policing and fire and rescue from every household.

As part of her job ensuring the opinions of residents are reflected, every year she holds a consultation which is then part of the recommendation put to the Police, Fire and Crime Panel next month.

This year’s survey is online now and runs until Wednesday 13 January. It can be completed at www.telljulia.info.

North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Julia Mulligan said: “After the hardest of years, it is more important than ever I hear your views about how much they think should be invested in policing and fire and rescue services from your council tax bill next year.”

“I know your personal circumstances and finances may have changed, but the pressures on our hard-working police officers, firefighters and staff remain as intense as ever. I want to get the balance right when I make my recommendation and set the precept, and your opinion is a crucial part of that.”
