I'm mad as hell and don't want to take it anymore. This is insane. Has Mike Craig never purchased house insurance? When we purchase home insurance, a portion of the decision of the rate is based on whether your community provides fire protection and they even ask how far from your house is a hydrant located. If close and the community provides fire protection, the rate is lower. Absolutely, if the insurance companies start getting billed for the service we pay taxes to provide, the insurance companies for everyone in Toledo will be raised to cover the cost.
I am so sick and tired of this I would like to scream. Have the guts to renegotiate the contracts, cut services temporarily in non-essential areas and move forward when the economy improves. By the time the fire department starts seeing the little bit of revenue from this money grab, the economy will have improved.
Dumb... dumb and dumber!
