Remember just a week ago we were honoring the 15th anniversary of 9-11. Several banks held special ceremonies to recognize our local first responders, including of course our volunteer firemen. We honored them, and thanked them for the dangerous job they do. And we also celebrated the memory of their brothers and sisters in the NYFD, who sacrificed and distinguished themselves 15 years ago.
Now, not much more than a week later, some locals are giving our volunteer firefighters, and the county officials who supported them, some heat. Seems like multiple complaints are popping up around the county about the new $35 property tax fee. The fee was added to Knox property taxes for each tract of land located in the county, but outside the city limits. (Non-profits like churches are exempt.) The fee is designated specifically to support the fire departments.
