SPOKANE VALLEY – Since council has adopted the Transportation Benefit District on Oct. 24, there have been questions on how it will be adequately funded. After deliberating the idea through a couple of workshops and meetings, they have narrowed the options down to just two.
Council is looking at either implementing an increased sales tax or vehicle tab fees.
Proposed ordinance 23-024 would move to implement a vehicle fee, and it would also create fund 111, which is where appropriate funds would be accounted for.
City staff estimate there are 140,676 registered vehicles in the city.
