(Victor Valley)– The Board of Supervisors rejected a move on June 11 to increase the FP-5 fire tax.Supervisor Lovingood opposed both the proposed increase and last year’s FP-5 fire tax measure. “I have always been a strong supporter of public safety. However on the issue of the FP-5 fire tax, I believe the taxpayers should have the right to vote on taxes,” Supervisor Lovingood said. “That is why I previously opposed the FP-5 fire tax and continue to oppose it today.”
The Board of Supervisors directed staff within 90 days to research options to replace the tax and possibly put it on the ballot for voters to decide.
