$30 Yakima car tab vote could be pushed back to August
YAKIMA, Wash. -- Yakima may decide to push back the vote on a $30 car tab fee. Action News learned city leaders will discuss Tuesday whether to put the measure out to vote in August.

Yakima originally decided to move forward with a special election in April, which is expected to cost the city an extra $50,000.

City council members will decide whether to save money and put it to vote during the August primary.

Taxpayers were still divided paying more money.

"I don't see a point in doing it because we're already getting taxed as it is," said taxpayer Veronica Rodriguez. "It's adding more things to an additional $30 per year. I don't see a point to it."

If approved by voters, the money collected will be used to fix and maintain about 100 lane miles in Yakima.
