The 2nd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment (Green Howards) is one of the army units to disappear under plans to slim down the armed forces.
Thousands turned out to see the Olympic flame carried through North Yorkshire.
Richmondshire District Council's Deputy Leader, Councillor Mick Griffiths, spoke to ITV News about the proposals.
Residents in Richmondshire who've been affected by flooding are welcoming news of a possible council tax discount.
John and Kitty Weedon were among those whose homes flooded in Bellerby when water came gushing through the village last year.
Flood victims who are forced to move out of their homes will be offered discounts on their council tax in one part of the region.
The plans for the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire follow last year's severe weather.
The local council is one of only a handful in the country to create its own policy, which could see a tax free period for up to 12 months for properties affected by floods.
The area was badly hit last Autumn and the authority says it is responding to the hardship suffered by residents.
The scheme will be piloted for 12 months and then reconsidered by councillors.
