Fire bill procedures outlined; road study spurs action
The town of River Falls is getting serious about collecting overdue fire call charges, some left unpaid for years.
Board members agreed the letter Town Clerk Ruth Stern wrote to send to people still owing for fire calls clearly explains the procedures for appealing or paying a fire call charge.
The letter says the Rural Fire Association sets the fees, which are $800 per call. This includes false alarms. A graduated fee schedule is used for multi-vehicle accidents.
