Attorney Lawrence Flynn, who has worked with the county’s fire prevention and protection advisory committee since last year’s merger of three departments created the Trinity department, said Woodruff officials have already expressed their support.

The agreement would transfer all assets and debts to the Trinity department, which is under the county’s control. Trinity was created out of the Hobbysville, Cross Anchor and Enoree departments with a $406,000 initial budget and tax rate limit of 29.9 mills.

Flynn said Woodruff currently charges its residents about 10 or 11 mills for fire protection. Once the merger takes place with Trinity, that millage would be eliminated and all residents would fall under Trinity’s budget and tax levy.

The end result should be little or no tax increase for residents, with better fire protection.”
