In December of 2012, the City Council passed an Ordinance to create and establish the City of East Wenatchee Transportation Benefit District (“the District”). The purpose of the District was to create a revenue stream to help satisfy the City’s increasing demand for repairs and improvements of residential streets.
The District’s first order of business established a multi-year Transportation Improvement Plan, identifying residential street improvement projects within the City for each of the following six years. The District’s second order of business was to establish and impose a $20 car tab fee on all vehicles and trailers licensed within the District’s boundaries. Additionally, the District entered into an interlocal agreement with the Washington State Department of Licensing to collect the fee and remit proceeds to the District, and it entered into an interlocal agreement with the City, which among other terms and conditions, provided for the City to operate the District at no administrative cost to the District. The intention of the District and the City is to mutually carry out the Transportation Improvement Plan whereby the City will plan and complete the street improvement projects of the plan, provide appropriate evidence of incurred costs and be reimbursed by proceeds of the $20 car tab fee revenue of the District. The District will not bear any administrative costs, only the direct costs of the street improvement projects.
