Wheel tax rolls to easy victory
Placeholder Image
Voters have chosen to continue paying a $30 annual wheel tax as the measure rolled to an easy victory last night.Balloters voted “yes” to the wheel tax question by a count of 4,734 to 2,097. The vote means the county will continue collecting the $30 per vehicle fee with revenue going to fund education.The result was met with satisfaction by the 24-member Warren County Commission, which endorsed the wheel tax at a recent meeting, 22-1, with one member absent. Some commissioners actively campaigned outside the polls in support of the wheel tax and the executor of a political action fund to endorse the wheel tax was County Executive John Pelham.
