1. I already pay taxes, why should I be charged additional fees for using fire services? The taxes levied in the City of Flint allow for the provision of actually having a professional fire department. The fees charged for the service represent our costs of actually responding to fires and emergencies.
The City of Flint, for a very long time, was able to provide these services without charging additional fees. Recently, however, continued reductions in state revenue sharing and other revenue shortfalls have put the emphasis on finding areas where we have been providing services for free that other communities are charging for.  

2. How were the charges decided upon? The charges were calculated by examining two types of information. First, the Fire Department and Administration surveyed what other communities of the same size were charging for fire services. Secondly, we examined what the typical insurance policy allowed for. The aim of this program is to allow the City of Flint to recoup as much as possible from the provisions in the typical insurance policy, without cause excessive hardship on residents.

3. How long do I have to pay for my bill? The timeframe for payment of fire service bills is the same as for typical city bills, 30 days. However, if you cannot pay in a timely manner, do not simply not pay the bill, it is best to contact the City Treasurer’s office at 810-766-7015. They have representatives that are trained to help people meet their financial obligations in the best way possible.

4. Whom can I contact with questions regarding my bill? If the question is regarding the nature of the bill, or dispute the validity of the bill, you may contact the Fire Financial Coordinator at 810-762-7336 extension 5105.
If the question is regarding the payment or arrangements to make payment, please contact the Customer Service Center at 810-766-7015.  

5. Where do I mail my check? Make all checks payable to: Treasurer, City of Flint. Be sure to reference the City Bill number which is on all bills from the City of Flint. Mail payments to: Treasurer, City of Flint, 1101 S. Saginaw St., Flint, MI 48502.
