O’Rourke Will Ask The Voters About Car Tab Fees

Voters could be asked in November to increase car tabs $20 to pay for street repairs. Instead of placing the issue on the November ballot, the City Council decided to hold off and wait for new Yakima City Manager Tony O’Rourke. He wants to pose the question in a community survey before the council moves to place the question on the ballot. Earlier this year, the council formed a transportation benefit area. Now the area just needs funding. If the council passes the car tab question to the ballot, and voters approve it, it will raise about $1 million a year to repair city streets. If voters turn it down, Mayor Micah Cawley says the council will have to look for the money in an already bare-bones budget.

On May 14, the city of Toppenish approved a $20 increase in car tabs for street repairs. The fee will take effect in about 6 months.
