City Council Will Not Put Car Tabs Vote on April Ballot
Voters will not see a car tab measure on a ballot in April. The Yakima City Council Tuesday voted to remove the proposal to raise car tabs by $30 from an April ballot. City Councilwoman Sarah Bristol told her fellow council members before the vote Tuesday, April is just too early for the issue to be placed on the ballot. At the next meeting on Feb. 5 the council will talk about placing the issue on the ballot in August. City Manager Tony O'Rourke says he will also present other options to the council to help fund future street repairs. The action Tuesday saved the city the $50,000 cost of placing the issue on an April ballot.
