BOS Adopts Ordinance Dedicating One Cent of Real Estate Tax for Fire and EMS Equipment
The Board of Supervisors at its February 9 meeting adopted an Ordinance to commit $.01 of the real estate tax revenue to be used exclusively for fire equipment replacement for the coordinated Fire and EMS system. This allocation provides long-term predictability for a dedicated funding system for certain fire equipment replacement. This allocation for fire equipment would not be subject to a deduction for any annual transfer to the school system and would not result in a tax rate increase.
