Before Julia Mulligan sets the amount you pay for policing in North Yorkshire she wants to hear your views.
It is the job of North Yorkshire’s elected Police and Crime Commissioner, Julia Mulligan, to set the precept, annually, and each year she consults with the public by asking them to take part in a survey to choose one of three options, these include:
- Freeze the precept – do not pay more than you pay now
This would mean a cut to the police budget.
- Increase the precept by 1.99%
This is an extra £4.40 per year (8p per week) for a Band D property.
This would raise around £1.3 million for next year and subsequent years.
- Increase the precept by more than 1.99%
This would raise more money.
This would mean spending at least £700,000 on a referendum on the proposals.
The survey is available online at www.telljulia.com and paper copies will be on display at public buildings across North Yorkshire, such as police stations, libraries and council offices.
