Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority has agreed a budget which will see its portion of council tax frozen for the third successive year.
The authority says £2 million of savings it made last year means council tax will remain the same, despite further Government grant cuts.
Though the rate has been frozen, the amount the authority will receive will fall due to Government changes to the council tax benefit system.
The budget for providing fire and rescue services to Hampshire for 2013-14 will be £67.5 million, a 4.3% fall from last year.
With the continuing pressure on household budgets I am delighted that the Authority has been able to set a budget that means no increase in our portion of the council tax for the third year running.
"We will continue to review how our services are delivered to make Hampshire safer."
