This post was provided by 95.3 MNC
If it’s approved, vehicles in Kosciusko County could be subjected to a new tax to help with a $400,000 shortfall for road upkeep.
The Wheel Tax Committee is proposing an increase from 25%-35% for most vehicles, and 60% for semis, beginning in 2020.
WSBT reports the tax bump is in response to the increase in material and labor costs involved in fixing the roads.
The County Council held a public meeting recently to get community input, and another meeting to address the possible increase will be held on July 11.
