Property values are rising, which often results in higher property taxes for many residents. To help reduce this burden, the Central County Fire & Rescue (CCFR) Board of Directors voted to reduce its general revenue tax rate by 5.5% for 2019. This will result in a savings of around $21 a year for the owner of a $200,000 home.
“Fiscal responsibility and being good stewards of the funding our community provides is critically important to our fire district. When we learned that an increase in area property values meant we could reduce our overall tax rate and continue providing the high quality emergency services our residents expect, we knew that this was the right decision to make. ” said CCFR Board Chairman Dave Tilley.
The 2018 general revenue tax rate was .9937 and the proposed general revenue tax rate for 2019 will be .9384.
