Mobile Home Owners Not Happy With Fire Fee

Residents in Nevada and Placer Counties are beginning to see the realities of the Fire Bill that was signed into law last year by Governor Brown. The $150 fee, to increase fire protection services in rural areas of California with high fire risks, began arriving in mailboxes earlier this month (October). One mobile home owner in a Colfax mobile home park thinks properties that are already cleared should be exempt from the bill.

The fire fee is assessed to owners of any habitable structure on a property including mobile home parks. CAL FIRE spokesperson Daniel Berlant sympathaizes with residents, but also supports the fee because of funding cuts as a result of reduced tax revenue in recent years.
