The Immokalee Fire Control District -- which includes the town of Ave Maria -- won approval by voters Tuesday for a mill rate increase that will partially restore funding to the district, which has had to cut budgets and lay off employees because of lower revenues due to declining property values. The mill rate increase will add $75 in property taxes per $100,000 of assessed value. Two other Collier County fire districts had similar requests rejected at the polls.
