Thomasville fire tax could increase

September 12, 2006

Thomasville-  People in Thomasville are learning fire protection doesn't come cheap.  Thomasville City Manager Steve Sykes announced plans to increase the city's fire tax nearly 10 percent. 

That means for a home worth 100-thousand dollars, the tax would increase 13 dollars a year.  Without the increase, the fire department would face a $140,000 deficit.

Taxpayers will have a chance to voice their opinion at a public hearing on September 21st and two hearings September 27th.
