We would like to take this time to, hopefully, clear the air regarding liens as a result of delinquent fire dues.
Certified letters are being mailed out to notify those who this action impacts. Liens are being placed on those who are THREE years delinquent. This is in adherence of State Law as a result of the referendum voted on, and passed, by the citizens of the West Blount Fire Districts coverage.
Fire dues are $150.00 per year. The district does NOT bill per incident. Fire dues are the ONLY expenses you will incur from us.
There are many different avenues one may take to ensure that their fire dues are paid every year. These options include; (1) A benevolence request may be filed with the district for those with fixed or low income. (2) The district also allows payment arrangements, this includes those with delinquent accounts.
For information regarding benevolence request, payment arrangements or any other billing matters please contact our billing office. Please do not approach ANY firefighter REGARDING these issues as they are not involved in the billing process, account statuses or finances of the district nor do they have any access to this information. Any information coming from ANYWHERE other than the billing office should be considered misinformation as these sources cannot adequately substantiate the information, or misinformation, that they are providing.
Lastly, the firefighters and those involved in the day to day operations of the department do not know who has paid or who has not paid fire dues. Payment or non-payment will not effect the services that we provide. We will stand by our mission statement to preserve life and property, regardless of your payment status.
For any more information regarding your account, please contact the billing office at (205)647-4566 OR visit the billing office in person at 757 County Highway 7 Hayden, AL 35079. ... ExpandHide
