Fees suspended in 2005by a former fire chief for the Belmont-San Carlos Fire Agency will be coming to apartment building owners soon. The fire authority, made up of representatives from the two cities, agreed to back-bill the property owners to raise $85,000 for the cash-strapped fire department, which nearly dissolved in 2006 because of budget problems. Last November, voters in the two cities rejected an assessment tax that would have solved the agency’s budget crisis.
