Monday, October 12, 2009 - 4:46pm

KEITHVILLE— Keithville residents may be seeing an increase in taxes soon to help keep the fire department.

Fire Deparment officials say, the increase would help maintain equipment and fuel, which has risen recently in price.

The new increase would raise taxes by 75 dollars.

Some citizens have said they understand the raise is necessary, but they are still worried about costs.

The Fire Department does not receive state or federal funding.

The increase will also help support retirement plans for firefighters.
