MEXICO BEACH, Fla. - Mexico Beach residents and business owners will soon have to pay more out of their pockets to help fund the city's fire department.
The city council voted 4-1 one in passing a resolution for a fire assessment fee Tuesday night. Council members approved the assessment of property owners paying 79 percent.
The city's general fund will offset the 21% difference. The rates are $281 for residential, 40 cents/square foot for commercial, and $42 for vacant lots per year.
Payments are due May 31st.
Mayor Al Cathey says property owners will have to pay 100% in November when the fee is assessed again for 2019.
