Following the public hearing on June 17th, the Washington County Board of Commissioners decided to refer a proposed countywide vehicle registration fee to the voters in November.

The County is considering a $30 per year fee on vehicles owned by residents and businesses. A $17 per year fee would apply to motorcycles/mopeds. Government, school, farm, antique, special interest and recreational vehicles, in addition to vehicles owned by disabled veterans would be exempt. If approved by the voters, 60 percent of the funds would be allocated to the county for roads it maintains and 40 percent to cities for use on roads they maintain. The ordinance will also be amended to provide greater clarity on how the funds will be used if the voters approve the fee.



How much would the fee cost, and what will it cover?

The fee, as discussed, would be $22, $30 or $43 per year. The proposed fee is meant to address a $10.5 million shortfall in road maintenance. Depending on the amount of the fee, it would fix most county roads, it may cover the shortfall in road maintenance and guard against budget gaps in the next 15 to 20 years. The revenues would be shared 60 percent to 40 percent by the county and the cities, based on their population.

How big is the shortfall?

This year, $33 million is needed for road maintenance, but the county only has $23 million. The gap in needed maintenance and available funds is projected to grow to $22 million by 2021. Last fiscal year, the road fund revenues were up 2 percent from the previous year, but expenses rose by more than 5 percent.

What happens if the fee does not get passed?

Much needed maintenance would not get done. Roads and bridges would fall into disrepair, requiring costly reconstruction in the future.
