A series of outstanding fire services charges have been written off by the County of Wetaskiwin, and the money will come out of the South Pigeon Lake Fire Department account.

The six outstanding accounts total just over $4,000 and entail two vehicle fires, two motor vehicle accidents, one grass fire and one brush fire.

During council’s June 21 discussion of the matter councillors were informed none of the outstanding charges were against landowners and therefore could not be applied to taxes.

“Some of them are out of province,” said Grace French, director of finance.

Coun. Larry McKeever says in the future the county can keep its billing procedures more “crisp.”

Council also had the option to keep the accounts on the book as outstanding balances, knowing they would not be able to collect payment.
