Fire Tax Change

The Transylvania County Board of Commissioners is considering a change to the fire tax in the county. If the commissioners vote to pass the proposed flat tax, all property owners in the Lake Toxaway area would see a significant increase to the fire tax for their property. Visit the website of the Lake Toxaway Community Center to view a letter from the Lake Toxaway Fire and Rescue Chief Carmon West on this important issue.

The Lake Toxaway Quilt group will not meet during the winter months. We will start our Tuesday meetings up again in the early spring.
