NORTH BENCH VOLUNTEER FIRE DISTRICT 2020 ANNUAL DUES

NBVFD has switched to an invoice system where the exact amount due by each property owner is indicated (since some own multiple properties). Once you receive your invoice in the next month or so, you can pay online at our websiteHere, or just complete and return the invoice with your payment. Dues can also be paid in person using the lock box at Station #1 on Hwy 2, Youngwirth CPA downtown, or at Mead's Equipment & Diesel on Hwy 95.

ALL FIRE CALLS ARE ANSWERED, NON-MEMBERS WILL BE BILLED HOURLY RATES

NON-Member Charges: Cost
Per hour charge for each fire or rescue vehicle responding $86.00 (minimum) and up.
Any damaged or destroyed equipment will be billed at the replacement or repair cost.

These standard rates for non-members are necessary in order to be fair to those who support the NBVFD by paying the yearly dues. All balances that remain due thirty (30) days after the billing date will be charged interest at one and a half percent (1.5%) per month, until paid in full. The State of Idaho Legislation now supports the collection of unpaid charges.
