[ARCHIVED] Transportation Fund and Referendum

On May 16, 2017, City Council voted to create a Transportation Utility Fund dedicated for the operation, improvement, maintenance, and rehabilitation of roads and funded through an $18.50 per month Transportation Fee on each utility account.

That fee was scheduled to begin on July 1, 2017.

On May 22, a group of citizens filed a petition for referendum which placed the Transportation Utility Fund and Fee on hold, and allowed the citizen group to collect signatures to place the item on the ballot. Ultimately, the petitioners decided against collecting signatures. As such, the Transportation Fund and Fee will begin August 1. The $18.50 fee will be reflected on your August bill and road projects will begin in the Spring.
