They don't plow their own roads either. Why would they when they can mooch off a tax supported system to provide road maintenance, fire and police services for them.

That's an excellent point! I wonder what would happen if the fire dept. didn't respond? Just curious...

That's exactly what my husband and I were wondering?
Could they really sue and on what grounds? After all it's the taxes that pay for the service and if u don't pay taxes it seems u aren't entitled to the service.

As much as I would love to see that happen, I don't think it would. After all, the fire dept responds to any vehicle fire. They don't see if you are a resident that pays taxes first.

That's a good point too. I take it that the gas station doesn't pay local property taxes in addition to sales tax to the state?

They probably are paying taxes on both Lakeside properties because they are trying to get those properties taken into trust. In order to have them taken into trust the property taxes must be current.

Well I guess that means they have to respond , but I guess a slow response could be considered helpful at some point.

The fact that you think an intentional slow response to a fire, under any circumstances, is acceptable speaks volumes.

The property taxes are paid on LakeSide Trading. It's a matter of public record. Just another case of not having information but making an assumption anyway............
