People double taxed in North Jessamine Fire District?

Some people say they're being double taxed for fire protection.

People who live in the North Jessamine Fire District met with the fire board Monday night, to talk about a sub-tax passed in 1995.

The money was supposed to fund a fire station in the 'Bellerive Shopping Center,' but a state audit found it's being put into a pool for fire services countywide.

Fire officials say abolishing the sub-tax could mean the end of the Bellerive Station.

No decision was made Monday night, but is expect soon.
