Fire Authority Budget Statement

in News

Members of Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority have today (Wednesday 13 February) approved the 2013/2014 budget for the Fire and Rescue Service in the two counties at £32.549m - a budget that requires no increase in council tax. This means that in the 12 months from April, Band D council taxpayers will once again pay £73.64 a year (or £1.42 a week) as their share of the total cost of the Service. Councillor Derek W Prodger MBE, Chair of Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Authority, said: “In this challenging financial climate, the Authority is more committed than ever to providing value for money and being efficient with its resources. Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service continues to be a relatively low spending yet high performing Service.”
