Transportation Program Summary
Feb. 22, 2018
The Transportation Committee’s February Program discussion was led by Joe Tortorelli from the Good Roads Association to talk about the feasibility of a County-Wide Transportation Benefit District in Spokane County and what it could look like. If one were created for Spokane, Spokane Valley, Liberty Lake, and Millwood; any sales tax increase over 0.2% and the implementation of a car tab fee exceeding $20 would need voter approval. Also, 80% of funds collected from each jurisdiction would be available to be used for immediate projects, and the remaining 20% would be saved for future transportation-related endeavors.
We meet again upstairs in Longhorn BBQ on Thursday, March 22nd, program TBD.
