ya that basically fits the description of....
"if it moves tax it"
of course if they charge per call they will have to justify their response time
and insurance in this state will be even harder to get
of course it hurts their municipal liability
but then again everyone like fines and lawyers and doctors
its like the bumper sticker .....

welcome to florida now go home

Does that mean that the money that is being used to pay these people now will be returned to the tax payers that were paying them already?
