This is for letting every home owner(that may not believe the toll road will impact them at all) that will be cut off from their FD/EMS because of the toll road. The proposed toll road will cut 9 current Hunt county roads and will cause longer response times and increases in their homeowners policy.
Exact examples are impossible, each person must contact their agent and their address will show the increase based on the FD response route (which is still up in the air).
Protection class is determined by the fire department’s ability to reach property in a timely manner.
Here’s a little info: http://www.iso.com/faq/ISO-FAQ/The-Public-Protection-Classification-PPC-Program.html
I would ask each everyone to inform their neighbors and ask them to call their agent about these increases and their local Fire department to see if they have any plans to mitigate the risk for the area in question. The fire chief should be willing to speak with you about it.
If you’d like to speak with the public radio station in Commerce about this issue, email email@example.com with your contact info and we’ll get back to you. Your Station, 88.9 KETR! will be at tomorrow’s meeting in Commerce.

It has been brought to my attention that a property owner along the right-of-way contacted another property owner claiming that a 3rd owner came to a settlement agreement with Public Werks. This is NOT true. If someone tries to tell you what your neighbor has done, please call your neighbor and verify the information. I don’t know of any settlements. That does not mean there have not been any. If you are offered compensation, it is your right to decide how to handle that. If you want to sell, I wish you the best and respect your decision. If you don’t want to sell, I wish you the best and respect your decision. This is personal to each and every one of us in our own way. We all have our own reasons for making the choices we make. We are all responsible for looking out for our own best interest and that of our family. That being said, as long as there are those who want to try to stop this thing, this forum will be available to express concerns and opinions. Let’s try to keep the facts straight and make it clear when something is our opinion.
