Did anyone bother to ask for fire history statistics to support the "Fire Benefits Charge"? I suspect one would find much lower likelihood of fires in more expensive residential structures. Did anyone bother to ask what percentage of the Fire Department responses are to non-structural fires and medical aid and what percentage are for fire fighting? I suspect the "Fire Benefits Charge" would be based on less than 10% of the fire department's cost. The "Fire Benefits Charge" is the worst idea I've heard in municipal governance in quite some time! And that is quite the accomplishment.
