Registration Fee Ballot Proposal Submitted to County Clerk

Kootenai County cities and highway districts yesterday submitted a ballot proposal to the county clerk to give voters the chance to weigh in on a Proposed Vehicle Registration Fee at the polls this November.

If passed, the fee would add $24 to the price of registering your vehicle each year for the next 20 years, to help fund road maintenance and improvements in Kootenai County.

Here's a look at some frequently asked questions about the proposal and how it would affect you and me.
