If property values in Any Village go down 10%, then each property is assessed at $90,000. The amount they pay in taxes, however, remains the same because the tax levy amount has not changed, even though the assessment has declined. Each resident still owns 50% of the total property in Any Village and must pay 50% of the $2,000 tax levy, which is $1,000. Even if the properties’ assessments increase to $110,000 each, the taxes stay exactly the same. They each still own 50% of the total property and Any Village still needs to collect $2,000, therefore they will continue to see a $1,000 property tax bill.
An increase or decrease in the assessment of an individual property is not an indicator of whether the tax bill for a property will go up, down, or remain the same.

Waste can include extravagant, careless, or needless expenditure of County funds. An example would be causing County funds to be used to purchase replacement parts for old equipment that is being scrapped.

At the conclusion of the hearing, the hearing officer weighs the evidence and credibility of the arguments and has several options for a decision. The hearing officer will decide whether a legal violation has occurred, whether to assess a fine and the amount, memorialize any settlement agreements that may have been concluded during the hearing, order restitution by a respondent to redress a grievance, or order the suspension of a license or registration.
The hearing officer sets the ground rules for the hearing and may exercise discretion in what types of evidence will be allowed, who may be present to assist a respondent (but an attorney is always permitted if desired), and the order and conduct of the presentation of the issues and evidence by both sides. A hearing officer may create a settlement where appropriate during the hearing or issue a decision constituting an order of the Office of Consumer Affairs at the conclusion of the hearing.

Yes, indeed. Over the years many women have served within the County’s volunteer fire departments and emergency medical service agencies. They have a lot of company, too; it’s estimated that there are between 35,000 and 40,000 female volunteer firefighters in departments across the United States. All firefighting jobs can be performed by a properly trained woman.

Your decision to become a fire or emergency medical volunteer is something of which your family can be proud. It is more than just a personal commitment, however. The time involved for both training and service will certainly affect the other members of your family. Emergencies seldom occur at convenient times, so your family will need to understand and accept that plans may need to change at a moment’s notice. In truth, no one can expect to be a successful volunteer without the full support of those whom they care for, and who care for them.
Yes, depending on your family situation, you should definitely include your spouse, children, siblings, and even parents in your considerations, and make sure that they understand the ways in which your decision is likely to affect your family life.
