Monday Market Myth: Fire Prevention Fee

Myth: A new firefighter law proposed on wild land will be used for more firefighters.

False: Unfortunately, new firefighting jobs will not be created with the Assembly Bill XI 29 called the State Responsibility Area Fire Prevention Area starting in 2011-2012.  The bill is explicitly used for fire prevention purposes within wildland area and property owners are charged $150 per habitable structure not per parcel.  Another fee imposed upon property owners but our safety is priceless.
