Liberty Is About To Double Tax On Fire Fees ...

Looks like Liberty residents are about to see a $200+ increase in their taxes (and fees which are taxes by another name). An average 25% hike on water/sewer rates and greater than $150 in a new fire fee.

One interesting side note about the fire fee is City Council okayed a motion that it was fair to collect taxes for the fire portion of property taxes AND to impose A DOUBLE FEE from the county. No service will be given from city, but they will continue to collect the "taxes" for it. They should do a tax millage rollback to adjust for the fire fee. 

Might should face a legal challenge - from the County.
