City TBD Back On The Table

The City of Spokane's Transportation Benefit District (TBD) may not be a done deal after all. The City Council rejected a $20 annual vehicle tax two weeks ago, but now Council President Joe Shogan is bringing the issue up again and the Council is expected to decide Monday if it will hold a Feb. 14 hearing on the vehicle tab fee.

To quote Shogan, “We are going to proceed on the TBD come hell or high water – whether we pass it or not – because a lot of talk with no funding is a lot of talk.”
That quote alone should get you to read this Spokesman article on the issue.
