Lakeview Fire Protection District was established in 1988 to levy and collect service charges or fees as provided in Act No. 86-656 of the regular session of the 1986 Alabama Legislature Session. The Fire District does not receive funding from any municipality. We rely on dues. Dues go towards everything from the trucks to the fuel to run the trucks to the training to drive the trucks.
Our billing cycle is October 1st through September 30th. Residential invoices are mailed out over a period of several weeks starting October 1st. If you have not received an invoice by mid November, please let us know. We mail out thousands of invoices each year and unfortunately some individuals do not receive their invoice. If this happens to you, just let us know and we will get you a new invoice by mail or email immediately. Business invoices are mailed out in the spring.
Dues not paid by the due date will be be subject to a $40.00 re-billing fee. After numerous attempts to collect dues owed, unpaid accounts will be placed in collections.
How to pay:
You may pay in person using a check/money or credit card
A red after hours drop box is located next to the main door at station 1 on Phyllis Drive for after hours payments.
Credit cards are accepted by phone and in person.
Business office hours vary during billing season. Please contact us first to ensure someone is available.
Fire fighters cannot accept payments.
Lakeview Fire does not have an online payment system however we can send you an payable invoice through PayPal or Square. To request a payable invoice, please email your Lakeview Fire invoice number, name name the property is under, address, and parcel ID if you have it to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a fee to use online invoicing. You will still receive a paper invoice even if you decide to pay through online invoicing.
Those exempt from county taxes are exempt from fire dues. You must file for exemption from the county every year. If you do not qualify for a county exemption you may apply for a hardship waiver. For a hardship waiver, submit your request to the board either at a monthly meeting or by email at email@example.com.
