Panama City Beach Fire Service Assessment Information

Post Date:11/21/2017

The City of Panama City Beach has initiated the process necessary to consider the imposition and collection of a Fire Service Assessment on all properties within the City. The City’s goal in implementing this assessment is to provide an alternative and supplemental means of funding the annual costs of providing fire protection services, including operating and capital expenses, for years to come on a fair, diverse and repeatable basis.  Revenue from the Fire Service Assessment, as required by law, may be used only to fund the Panama City Beach Fire Department, and will enable the immediate construction, staffing and equipping of a centralized fire station to better and more efficiently serve our community.  Ultimately then, this assessment will allow our community to continue making high-quality fire protection services and facilities available while showing responsible financial stewardship.


The proposed special assessments for each parcel of property are based on a benefits and burdens analysis that has been recommended by an experienced team of professional advisers, validated locally and approved by the Florida Supreme Court as compliant with Florida law. The two-tiered rate structure is associated with the cost of making continually available fire protection services and facilities every day for all tax parcels within the City.  The City is mindful that its proposed rates are lower than those imposed in surrounding jurisdictions for fire services.


A hearing will be held on January 11, 2018 to consider adoption of the assessment.  The proposed Fiscal Year 2018-2019 rates (that is the Fiscal year starting in October of 2018), as shown below under the Quick Search engine, intend to show the maximum rates the City might impose for a Fire Service Assessment the coming fiscal year, exclusive of a nominal share of annual administration and collection costs for each parcel.
