Exemptions for FP-5 proposal

On proposed County Fire parcel tax, there are exemptions

Exemptions from the proposed expansion of FP-5 (fire protection district 5) are for those areas covered by a CSD - Community Service District. (We are a CSA - Community Service Area). These include Yermo, Newberry Springs, Baker and Daggett community services districts, and the city of Hesperia. Other areas are exempt, too. For a full list, refer to the article. Wonder Valley is not exempt.

Mark Lundquist, field aide for Third District Supervisor James Ramos, assured me there will be a presentation for Wonder Valley, and we'll be notified when the presentation schedule is released.

Consultants are crafting a special tax which would be an alternative to the proposed FP-5 expansion. A 3-month analysis is underway.
