    Section 5. The Fire Protection District Act is amended by
changing Section 11f as follows:
    (70 ILCS 705/11f)  (from Ch. 127 1/2, par. 31f)
    Sec. 11f. Charge against non-residents.
    (a) The board of trustees of a fire protection district may
fix, charge, and collect fees not exceeding the reasonable cost
of the service for all services rendered by the district
against persons, businesses and other entities who are not
residents of the fire protection district.
    (b) Such charge may not be assessed against residents of
the fire protection district or persons who request fire
protection coverage for an unprotected area and who pay to the
fire protection district an amount equal to the district's Fire
Protection Tax pursuant to Section 4 of the Fire Protection of
Unprotected Area Act.
    (c) The charge for such services shall be computed at a
rate not to exceed $250 $125 per hour per vehicle and not to
