Hughes County Commission Approves Wheel Tax Hike

July 17, 2012, 7:04 AM

PIERRE, SD -

The Hughes County Commission has voted to increase the county's wheel tax to raise more money for roads and bridges.

The tax will rise by $2 per wheel or $8 per vehicle, doubling the current tax to the state maximum of $4 per wheel or $16 per vehicle. It will generate about $350,000 per year.

Proposals to increase the county's wheel tax have failed in the past. Voters defeated a referred measure in 1995, and in 2008 county commissioners rejected another proposal after a Pierre resident threatened to refer it.

David Braun of Pierre says he plans to start circulating petitions to refer the latest measure to a public vote.
