This Monday night, the Lynnwood City Council is expected to vote on an ordinance that would enact a $20 vehicle registration fee.
The Transportation Benefit District, as it’s known, is expected to generate about $420,000 a year to pay for road projects.
If the ordinance is enacted as written, the money would go toward the following:
- Street Fund (roadway and signal maintenance)
- Overlay Program (roadway resurfacing)
- Traffic Signal Rebuild Program
- Traffic Signal Reconstruction: Scriber Lake Road at 196th Street SW
- 48th Avenue W Sidewalk: 183rd Place SW to 180th Street SW
The meeting will begin this Monday at 6 p.m. (before the regular council meeting) in Lynnwood City Council chambers. There will be a public comment period before the vote.
If approved, it would take effect on or about March 1, 2011.
Cities should have NO RIGHT to tax us for their own pet projects. VOTE NO on this Excess Taxation. Lynnwood already steals from people with thier socalled RedLight cameras
This city cannot spend money fast enough. They just imposed a bunch of new utility taxes and now this.
Yet they have $27 million to piss away on a new public pool and they have laid off virtually none of the dead wood public employees who are collecting taxpayer-funded paychecks.
In the next election I will vote out any council member who votes to impose this latest bit of extortion.
The convention center was a great waste, anyone ever see someone in there? Maybe once or twice, but hey, to be a real city you need a convention center even if no one comes.
Don`t you remember? The city shot down two hotel proposals to go next to the convention center. Gough and Hikel are done running this town into the ground.
