Fee increases for Waste, Fire Protection

With the setting of annual assessment rates on the docket, the Board of County Commissioners held a four-hour public hearing Sept. 6 with approximately 30 Levy citizens in attendance.

After receiving feedback from numerous attendees, the Board passed a new rate for Solid Waste that shifts the burden of costs from user tipping fees to a $116 assessment fee. Fire Protection Services and EMS assessments also saw an increase in their respective rates.

Fire Protection was first on the agenda.
