    Hello Sunshine, Buncombe County Fire Departments are separate entities, I would direct these questions to those fire departments. We do not have records responsive to these questions. The requestor can find more information about Fire & Service Tax Districts in our Annual Report, which is available at buncombecounty.org/budget. Scroll to budget documents and click annual report.

     

    Thanks,

    Kassi Day
