Fiscal court strips opt-out provision for fees

-A A +A

All Owen property owners will be obligated to pay for fire department membership

By Molly Haines

After several months of debate, the Owen County Fiscal Court passed an ordinance that makes it mandatory for property owners to pay fire department membership fees. The ordinance was passed during a special June 25 meeting.

When ordinance 156 was passed during the June 2008 fiscal court meeting, the court agreed that the ordinance would be reviewed annually.

Upon reviewing the ordinance this year, the court concluded that ordinance 156 was illegal because it gave property owners the option of not paying the fire department membership fees.
