No comments, no vote on Bainbridge car tab fee

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

If islanders are perturbed by a proposed new vehicle registration fee, they didn’t show it Wednesday.

A hearing on a resolution creating a charge of up to $20 per vehicle to support road work drew no attendees to City Hall on Wednesday evening. The Transportation Benefit District board — made up of City Council members — did not vote on the proposed fee. Instead, a vote may come at the district’s Dec. 5 meeting.

A few islanders have spoken out for and against car tab fees at past meetings. Some believe the charge is a fair way to raise money for badly needed road repairs. Others, including car collectors, say it would unduly burden households with multiple vehicles.

The city estimates a $20 fee would generate $330,000 each year for road projects.

The full draft resolution can be read here.
