Questions Linger Over Funding for Emergency Services

BENTON COUNTY, AR -- Who will pay for your emergency service? That's the question in rural Benton County, where a funding fight is heating up.

Rocky Branch Fire and Rescue volunteers met with county leaders, to discuss who should be billed for emergency services. The question over who should pay for those services in rural parts of the county is a hot topic. The Quorum Court has proposed a countywide two-percent millage and an annual per-household fee for rural homes.

The court will meet again to discuss the issue on July 24.
