Ed Hogan(Cheatham County) collects a Fire Tax amount from the Town of Pegram property owners for Fire Service inside the Town. The Town of Pegram has its own Municipal Fire Department which has Volunteers like most other Fire Departments. Cheatham County alleges that it has a County-wide Fire Plan but The County provides no service. The Town of Pegram has never adopted a property tax but is being taxed by Cheatham County by contract. The tax rate for the Town of Pegram is the same as for the County. The rate bears no relationship to any cost of service and the Town has only 6 or 7 Square miles while the Pegram Fire Department travels a far greater distance for the County service for those in the Pegram Rural Fire District. That does not meet with the requirements necessary for any Fire tax, plan nor County Fire Department. Like many "governmental services," Cheatham County is being arbitrary and trying to tax some without a real and fair basis. Pegram has its own problems of managing and its own Fire Chief does not even live in the Pegram Fire Districts. What is up with that? The current County Attorney is the former Town of Pegram Attorney who got them in the messes they are in.
