Wheel tax could lead to more road upgrades

Car owners in Appleton might have to pay a wheel tax next year, and the city might schedule additional road construction projects to spend all of the revenue.

The city would use the $20-a-year tax to replace special assessments for property owners. The fee could generate about $1.7 million, but over the past 10 years, the assessments totaled an average of $1.3 million each year.

Ald. Curt Konetzke says the city needs to focus on re-doing more roads. He says they could set up a reserve fund, and build it, for future projects.

The city council will take up the wheel tax next Wednesday night.
