County Board Chair Reaction To Wheel Tax Vote

A county wheel tax ordinance could be brought up again, but Mercer County Board Chairman Carlos Sarabasa says that will be up to individual county board members. He says he doesn’t plan to bring it up, but understands currently the county doesn’t have an adequate enough revenue stream to properly repair roads.

The county board voted down the wheel tax by a 5-3 margin last week with Sarabasa voting no. The county board doesn’t meet again until August 6th.
