Funding for the VRFA

Funding for the Valley Regional Fire Authority, as approved by the voters, comes from two sources: property taxes and a fire benefit service charge. Property taxes are collected at a rate of $1 per $1,000 of assessed value on all taxable properties within the boundaries of the VRFA. The second portion of the funding, a fire benefit service charge, is charged on individual properties based on the square footage, occupancy type and required fire protection resources of each structure in the VRFA service area.
