Scotts Valley Fire Protection has established and adopted a fee schedule by local ordinance. User and regulatory fees are intended to cover all, or a portion of, the costs incurred by the District for providing fee-related services and activities that are not otherwise provided to those not paying the fee. California law provides guidance regarding the amounts the District may charge for fee-related services and activities. Specifically, in order to avoid being considered taxes, fees charged shall not exceed the estimated reasonable cost of providing the services, activities, or materials for which fees are charged.
The District only accepts cash or check as method of payment. Fees are due upon issuance of permit or invoice.
