Shropshire and Wrekin Fire Authority precept proposal - have your say

Shropshire and Wrekin Fire Authority is proposing an increase of 2.99 per cent to the portion of council tax which goes to Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service. This equates to just over £3.30 per year, or 6p per week and we want to hear what you think about the proposal.
