EAST YORKS: Humberside police and crime commissioner Matthew Grove is proposing freezing the council tax police precept.
Mr Grove said he wants to keep the precept charged by Humberside Police at the same level.
In a report to the cross-party police and crime panel, Mr Grove asks councillors to support his plans to freeze the precept.
The Government has said any authority that freezes its council tax bills will be given a grant of £503,000 – equivalent to a 2 per cent rise.
A decision will be made when the panel meets on Wednesday and are also expected to confirm Justine Curran as the next chief constable.
