Public Hearing on Expansion of Reservoir Fire District

This is your reminder of the public hearing on the proposed expansion of the Reservoir Fire District. The hearing will take place Friday, April 15, 2016, 9:00 a.m., during the Rankin County Board of Supervisors' regularly scheduled meeting.  

The proposed expansion would include many parts of Old Fannin Road to the Flowood municipal limits (including Bridlewood and Barnett Bend), parts of Holly Bush Road, and Reservoir East/Basswood.  

If approved, anticipated fire rating for those districts would go from a 10C (essentially no fire protection), to a 6.  Anticipated savings on homeowners' insurance would is estimated to be 35% to 45%.  There would me a millage increase, however, the savings on homeowners' insurance is expected to exceed said millage increase.  Be sure to check with your local insurance agent.

I checked with local agent (and Rez News advertiser) Randy Ates to get an idea of the difference in savings.  Using a home in the Barnett Bend subdivision as a specific example, with a coverage limit of $144,000, the premium decreases by over 50% as a result of being included in the Reservoir Fire District.  Impressive.
