Fire Tax Rates

Fire tax rates for Municipal fire departments will increase slightly for four department and decrease for three.  The rates per 100 dollars of assessment  have been approved by Lunenburg Municipal Council.  Mayor Don Downe says  a number of departments actually increase the fee if they purchase a big piece of equipment and  once the equipment is paid for the  tax is reduced down. Downe says that speaks well of the community fire departments and their sensitivity to the tax issue by residents. Additionally, all fire departments have a rate of point 01 per acre for forestry land assessment class.
