12/11/2012 16 TBD Vehicle License Registration Fee for Road Infrastructure Funding; Ballot Measure Submission for Election April 23, 2013BUSINESS OF THE CITY COUNCIL YAKIMA, WASHINGTON AGENDA STATEMENT Item No. ) p For Meeting of: December 11, 2012 ITEM TITLE: SUBMITTED BY: Resolution of the Transportation Benefit District Board submitting a ballot proposition implementing a ten year $40.00 annual vehicle license registration fee to the vote of the people on the April 23, 2013 special election. Jeff Cutter, City Attorney CONTACT Jeff Cutter, City Attorney PERSON/TELEPHONE: SUMMARY EXPLANATION: The Revised Code of Washington authorizes Transportation Benefit District's (TBD) to levy and impose taxes and fees to support road improvements. On February 7, 2012, the City Council passed Ordinance 2012-08 establishing the City of Yakima TBD to support road infrastructure improvements. The election expense is estimated at approximately $70,000, which includes election fees, advertising costs and staff time. Currently, the TBD has no source of funding. The staff recommends the City Council consider a ballot measure for April 23, 2013 that would authorize an annual $40 vehicle license registration or car tab fee for road infrastructure improvements If approved, the $40 fee would generate approximately $2 million annually for the TBD. The City Council could either use the $2 million annually for "pay-as-you-go" road improvements or issue a $25 million bond for road improvements, with the $2 million dollar vehicle license fee used for annual debt service payments. In addition, staff recommends the $40 annual vehicle license fee would expire or "sunset" after ten years Any further collection of the fee would require another public authorization vote. The question of a vehicle registration fee or "$20 car tab" fee was asked in the 2012 written Citizen Survey. The 837 survey respondents were split 50/50 in support of a $20 car tab fee. An online -based version of the Citizen Survey, with 588 respondents, demonstrated a higher 60% support for a $20 car tab "fee". The proposed road improvements that could be funded by a car tab fee are attached.
