The Sacramento Bee’s Dan Walters comments on the connection between CAL FIRE’s secret fund and the Fire Fee in a report called “Dan Walters Daily: Hidden money and false poverty”
“What is this fee supposed to accomplish? It does not fight fires…”
- Terry from Bear Valley Springs
“I have two fire stations each one about two miles from me. We have another one eight miles away… What is this fee for?”
- Cassandra from Mariposa
“Due to the contradictory language regarding the timing of establishing the fee amount and providing feepayer information to the BOE, it is unclear when the BOE would actually receive all of the information necessary to issue assessments.”
