February 12 Meeting Recap

BOS Holds Public Hearing and Approves Ordinance Allocating $.02 of the Real Estate Tax for Fire Apparatus Replacement

The Board of Supervisors at its February 12 meeting approved an ordinance allocating $.02 of the Real Estate tax for Fire Apparatus Replacement for the Coordinated Fire and EMS System.  Since the fiscal year 2014, as part of the Board approval of an annual budget, the Board has committed revenue from $.02 of the real estate tax to be used for fire apparatus replacement for the coordinated Fire/EMS System.  The approved ordinance will make such an allocation permanent in a way that provides long-term predictability and a dedicated funding stream for certain fire apparatus replacement.
