Rather than the $5 deed fee increase they had requested, fire departments in Henry County will split about $16,000 annually.
In April, the court considered the request along with three scenarios presented by Judge-Executive John Logan Brent. Among those proposals was an option that would create two $8,000 grants.
The court voted last week to go with that option in a 3-3 vote, with Brent breaking the tie. Magistrates Scott Bates, Roger Hartlage and Nick Hawkins voted against the proposal.
