Hopkins County Firefighter Opt Out Exemption

Wikimedia Commons

Elderly and Disabled Hopkins County residents can now opt out of firefighter dues permanently instead of notifying the county each year.  Officials say anyone who is 65 or older or who has a disability exemption may choose to opt out indefinitely. The ordinance allows anyone in the county to refuse to pay yearly dues to their volunteer firefighter departments. However, should a fire break out, the property or homeowner would be responsible for the entire cost of the firefighters response. Residents have until June 1st to opt out.
