Consultants researching possible fire services fee; Crestview council commissions $19K study

Traylor has said that because the assessment would be added to water customers' bills, it is not subject to property owners' homestead exemptions.

Helt — who, with Councilman Mickey Rytman voted against Gordon's motion — said she opposed it, in part, because the study would be funded with "non-budgeted money to a company that didn't competitively bid to offer the service."

The city's general fund, bolstered in January to $858,000 by a refund from Gulf Power for overbilled lighting service, would fund the study.
