For years the City of Lake City has had fire calls on its fee schedule but hasn’t billed for it.
On Nov. 12, the City Council left them off the fee schedule it approved for the year 2020. The schedule is a list of virtually all fees charged by the city, from popcorn stands, to building permits, to camp sites at Hok-si-la and slip rentals in the marina.
Prior to 2020, fire call fees were based on which trucks responded to the fire or the type of incident. The ladder truck, for example, was $300. A vehicle fire for a non-resident is $350.
