Chairman: Fire fee billing improving

Lamar County commissioners are looking at lowering some commercial fire and ambulance fee rates next year, but residential rates will likely remain at $50 for medical and ambulance services and $30 for the county fire department, a total of $80 for individual homeowners. ’We’re not going to look at a past due list and deny services. People need to get that out of their heads,’ said chairman Jay Matthews at a Dec. 1 work session. ‘Once people called about it and understood it, most came in and paid the bill,’ he added. About 500 corrected fire and ambulance fee bills are in the mail, and a second billing is in the works to cover those who have not received any bills.
