Fire Assessment Fee notices were mailed to all Lakeland property owners on June 15th. This notice is informing you of a public hearing that will take place July 6th at 10 am at City Hall in the City Commission Chambers. The notice is not a bill – it is informing you that if a fire assessment fee is implemented – the dollar figure listed in your letter is the maximum you would pay.
If you received multiple notices mailed to the same address, it is because the property is listed as having multiple owners. In other words, the property may be jointly owned so all those listed as owners receive a notice. Even though every owner listed with interest in the property receives a notice, each parcel is only assessed the one fee.
If you still need assistance, please call 863.834.7926 and leave your name, a contact number and the question you have regarding your fire assessment fee notice. Someone from our office will contact you as soon as possible. You may be able to get the answer you are looking for by reviewing our frequently asked questions.
