Marinwood's Paramedic Tax Continues 7 years after adoption but STILL MARINWOOD FD does not have Paramedics stationed locally
Since 2011 Marinwood CSD has been taxed for Paramedic services that it has never received. The Marinwood CSD Board of Directors do nothing while our community is being ripped off. Why are we continuing the tax? Here is a recent resolution by the City of San Rafael. If you or a loved one had an ambulance response, you will notice that you received a huge bill sent to you by San Rafael Fire Department. This is a tactic used to collect extra from Medicare and your insurance company. =============================
