The Village of St. Helena residents have not been paying the fire tax. The village pays the fire tax of nine cents per $100 valuation. The village also pays for picking up the trash and recyclables.

Judy Katalinic said that the population determines sale tax revenue.

Charles White wanted permission to the state about getting his land out of St. Helena. Attorney Coleman said that the Council could not act on that request.
