Challenging the Fire Tax in Shelby Cnty


Rural north Shelby County residents who successfully thwarted future annexation by Memphis may take aim at a fire tax proposed for unincorporated areas of the county.

The Rural Action Group, which in 2003 won a three-year legal and political fight to protect Shelby Forest residents from urban growth, will consider mounting a challenge to a fire tax proposed to finance emergency fire and ambulance services.
