Jackson County Commissioners to Discuss Fire Service Funding Tuesday
The Jackson County Board of County Commissioners will hold a meeting regarding fire service funding Tuesday.
Some fire departments say the nearly $12,000 they receive annually isn't enough.
They want those funds doubled to help properly maintain their stations, as well as purchase new equipment.
With a tighter budget this year, Commissioners so far have failed to approve that increase.
If it fails this Tuesday, fire departments may have to wait until next year's budget session to request it again.
The deadline to approve 2014-2015 budget is September 5.
