TR recently published a report on the proposed increase to the fire service fee. The full report can be read here.
Listed below is a schedule for the proposed increase for the business classifications for all businesses located within the City limits and Leon County.
To look up the proposed fee you need to know the square footage of the office and if the office is located in Zone 1 or Zone 2. Zone 1 applies if the business is located within 5 miles of two core fire stations. Zone 2 applies if the business is located more than 5 miles from two core fire stations.
For example, from the chart below, if the size of office is 3600 square feet and is located in Zone 1, the current annual fee of $809 is slated to increase to $1023, or approximately 26%.
These rates are proposed and have yet to be voted on by the City and County.
