Let’s Have Higher Fire Fees

The Fire Protection Fee is paid by everyone irrespective of their property values.  This is a fair tax because everyone is treated equally.  This contrasts with the property tax in which recent arrivals and new construction are penalized with higher taxes than those who have long ago had homestead a limitation at a lower rate?  Therefore, for those who are paying more property taxes for the same property values would certainly be pleased that all future tax increases come from fee increases.
