AN ACT TO MODIFY BRUNSWICK COUNTY'S FIRE PROTECTION FEES.
Only applies to Brunswick County.
Amends SL 1999-323, as amended, to authorize the county manager to designate an official other than the fire marshal to serve on the committee that sets fire protection fees. Allows fire protection fees to be imposed on all owners of real property and manufactured homes within the fire district (currently, those that benefit from the availability of fire protection).
Doubles all existing limits on fire protection fee amounts.
Directs the accountant performing the fire department's audit to report to the county manager (currently the county fire marshal's office).
Authorizes the County to collect any delinquent fire fees, existing either before or after the effective date of this act, under any procedure for the collection of property tax leins including by attachment, garnishment, and foreclosure (currently just foreclosure, and unspecified as to whether fire fees existing before the effective date of the act may be collected).
