Fort Wayne City Council to talk Wheel Tax tonight

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Fort Wayne City Council will hold a public hearing and discussion on a proposed wheel tax tonight.

The Council is considering implementing a new wheel tax that would generate about $6-million a year for road repairs. Councilman Tom Didier tells our partners in news at 21Alive he’s been getting a lot of phone calls about people unhappy about the prospect of paying $25 (for a standard vehicle) to $40 (for a semi or other large truck) more for their license plates, so he’s proposing a reduced price, along the lines of $20 or even $15.

That would make a $2.2-million difference in how much the city brings in.

The meeting is tonight at 5:30 at Citizens Square.
