Who pays for all the new growth in the City and the Fire District?

The City collects a one-time Fire Impact Fee from new residential or commercial developments. This revenue is dedicated to funding capital projects for fire, such as the new engine that was purchased by the city in 2014. Under annexation, these impact fees would be used by the Fire District instead to fund future fire capital projects. After the Fire Impact Fee, property owners in the City would pay the same fire levy rate for service as those in the District.
