Pleasant, $2,967; Gunnison, $7,050; Fountain Green, $1,990; Spring City, $1,209; Fairview, $4,224; Ephraim, $3,540; and Manti, $3,540.The amounts are largely determined by the size of the area each city will protect, according to County Commission Chairman Robert Bessey.

He pointed out that the county is obligated to provide its unincorporated areas with fire protection, but that the cities are better equipped to do so.
