Americus, GA (WALB) – Sumter County property owners will see a controversial fee on their tax bill this December.

Commissioners passed a fire service fee to generate $1.4 million to pay for the new county fire department.

The fees range from $50 to $150.

The Americus Fire Department previously served the county, but the county did not re-new the contract due to rising costs.
