Davis Lake Fire District De-annexation Plan

The Davis Lake Fire District De-annexation Plan

We are writing this to explain any questions you may have about the Davis Lake Fire District de-annexation plan.

What is de-annexation? De-annexation is a process by which any property that has a residence or business is annexed into another fire district or municipality.

The charge or fee for de-annexation will be 5 times the amount of the annual dues paid to the Davis Lake Fire District the preceding year. The de-annexation charge or fee is to be paid by the annexing municipality or the property owner involved in the proceedings.

This de-annexation plan is the normal procedure for fire districts. This de-annexation plan is a budget leveling device to help the fire district plan a budget to ensure necessary revenue to run the fire district.

This de-annexation plan will come up for a vote by members of the Davis Lake Fire District for approval before it goes into effect.

This charge or fee does not involve people moving from one residence or business to another. This is not a moving charge.

If you have any questions, please call us at 467-3533 or come by the office Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and we will be happy to talk with you about any concerns or questions you may have.
