SUMMIT, Miss. (AP) - Summit property owners could soon see some more cash returning to their wallets in the form of insurance savings.

Fire Chief Stan McMorris says he’s received word from the State Rating Bureau that Summit’s fire rating is falling from a Class 7 to Class 6. And, in the fire department’s rural service area, the rating will drop from a Class 9 to a Class 7.

The Enterprise-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1VFuvp5 ) the lower ratings are due in part to equipment upgrades and the construction of a new fire station on Highway 98 to serve rural residents. McMorris says the lower ratings will mean a substantial savings for homeowners.

McMorris told the town council Tuesday that they’ve been working over the last few years on the issue.
