HOW MUCH extra are you prepared to pay for the services of Humberside Fire and Rescue in the new financial year? That’s the question being asked in a new survey of local residents. There are four options: An increase of 22p per month (£2.69 per year) on a Band D property; an increase of 42p per month (£4.99 per year); an increase of 67p per month (£7.99 per year) or no increase at all.

As previously reported by Beverley FM, the survey follows one by the  Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Jonathan Evison whose preferred option, based on a Council Tax Band D property, is an increase of £14.99 over the whole year, equivalent to 29p per week.
