There will be a public forum for the purpose of hearing citizen’s views on the proposed Fire Tax Rates for the purpose of Emergency / Fire Services for rural Cheatham County (and Pegram City). The proposed fire tax rate is based on the assessed property value for the areas. The forum will be held May 21, 2012 at 6:00 pm in the General Sessions Courtroom. The Cheatham County Commission meeting will follow.
The rates for south Cheatham areas are as follows:
Kingston Springs Rural $.2508
Pegram Rural $.2303
Pegram City $.2320
In previous years the rate was .1673. In Kingston Springs and Pegram last year, on a $200,000 home the fire tax would have been just over $83. This year in Kingston Springs rural that tax will be just over $125. In the Pegram Town limits, this year that number goes up to $116. Pegram rural goes up to just over $115.
