(a) The board of commissioners determines it to be in the best interest of the economy of the City of Danville and its citizens that industrial and commercial buildings located within Boyle County, but outside the limits of the city, be protected against loss by fire, and a policy is hereby established under which the city will provide fire protection service unto industrial and commercial properties located outside the limits of the city, but within Boyle County.
(b) Any owner of industrial or commercial property located within Boyle County, but outside the limits of the City of Danville, desiring fire protection service shall file an application with the office of the city manager and pay unto the city an annual fee in advance for the providing of such services in accordance with the formula or schedule attached hereto and incorporated by reference. The application shall be on a form prescribed by the city manager. The formula or schedule of fees may be amended from time to time by resolution of the board of commissioners.
(c) If any industrial or commercial property to which the services are provided is annexed into the City of Danville, then upon such annexation it shall no longer be required to pay for its fire protection. Any payment for service which has been made in advance shall be prorated and a proportionate amount refunded unto the owner.
(d) The providing by the city of fire protection services shall not be interpreted or construed so as to make the city an insurer or guarantor, and under no circumstances shall the city be held liable unto the industrial or commercial owner or occupant for any loss or damage from fire. The city shall have complete discretion in determining priority in responding to fire calls, which will be done in accordance with the applicable standard operating procedures of the city.
