Bid to save public cash

A money-saving proposition to share fuel facilities in the East Riding has been agreed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Humberside Police.

Under the new agreement, both parties, who have various operational vehicles in their fleets, including patrol cars, waste collection vehicles and gritters, will be able to make use of each other’s fuel facilities, reducing the need to use commercial forecourts.

The deal allow both parties to access a cheaper rate of fuel.
