If you are a resident of Meadview, AZ, there is a possibility that you are not a part of the Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District. This means that your taxes are not being used to support our local fire department.
What does this mean? If a property not within LMRFD has a structure fire, then the full cost of the fire suppression efforts will be billed to the property owners. This can be as much as $20,000 or more depending on the resources used.
Currently, the tax rate for properties within LMRFD is 3.25%.
White Hills Residents
Properties in White Hills are not eligible for annexation into LMRFD. However, this does not mean you need to be on the hook for a big bill in the case of a structure fire.
We are currently at work creating a process to allow residents and businesses within White Hills to form independent agreements with LMRFD. When this is completed, instructions on how to submit your request will be added to this page.
If you are a resident of Meadview and would like to become part of the Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District, please fill out and submit an annexation form.
Download and Fill Out Annexation Form
The annexation form must be filled out to the best of your knowledge and requires the legal description of the property. If you have multiple parcels, an annexation form must be submitted for each one.
There are two ways to submit your completed forms.
1. Drop them off at: 16126 Pierce Ferry Rd, Dolan Springs AZ 86441, Monday through Friday, 10am to 3pm.
2. Mail them to us at: PO Box 611, Dolan Springs AZ 86441
After your annexation form or forms have been submitted, the LMRFD Board members will have to vote to accept your request. This is normally done during the regular monthly meetings, which are the 3rd Thursday of every month. You are not required to attend the meeting if you choose not to.
Once the Board votes to accept your annexation request(s), then the Board Clerk will submit the documentation to Mohave County to be recorded and processed. Once this is done, it is no longer in LMRFD hands. Any further inquiries will have to go to Mohave County. It may take up to 6 months for the County to finalize the annexations.
