Livingston Updates Fees For County Fire Coverage

City of Livingston is updating its fire coverage fees for buildings outside of the city limits.

Mayor Curtis Hayes said that includes buildings like the County Industrial Park. He said they want to provide protection services for local businesses, but in a way that makes more financial sense for the city.

“To our knowledge, the price hadn’t been changed in over 30 years,” Hayes said. “So we took a look at that and decided that due to the amount of inflation over that amount of time that it was time to increase the cost.”

Hayes said those who utilize coverage from the city’s fire department are also able to use the city’s ISO rating. The Insurance Services Office rating reflects how prepared a community is for fires.

Hayes said he and the Board of Aldermen approved the change in fees at its last meeting. He said it went into effect immediately.

“It’s always good to be able to provide services to pour manufacturers unfortunately it comes at a cost to the city of taxpayers of Livingston,” Hayes said. “So we want to make sure that we can continue the services for our county industrial park, the fees just increase just a little.”
