Coffee County Fire Fee Denied

Earlier this month, Coffee County commission denied a request to put a fire fee before voters.

Monday, several firefighters along with emergency rescue personnel came before the board to show their support for the levy.

Under its terms, each homeowner and business would pay a flat $30 a year.

The funds in turn would be used in various volunteer departments and rescue squads.

The county commission agreed to table the matter.

Several Wiregrass counties including Houston and Dale impose a fire fee.
