City of Lodi Wheel Fee's Potential Impact on Town Residents

The City of Lodi passed a $20.00 wheel tax that became effective in May of 2016.  The impact that may have on Town of Lodi residents is that when your vehicle registration renewal is received it may include the $20.00 fee.  I spoke to a representative of the Department of Transportation and they explained that when a person purchases a vehicle the dealership typically just records the vehicle as being in a City rather than asking whether the buyer lives in the City or the Town.  I, for one, have never thought to look at that part of a vehicle purchase contract.  Now, that part of the contract is significant.  If you have already paid the $20.00 fee and your vehicle is kept at a residence in the Town you can call 608-264-7447, and go to prompt 2.  The Department of Transportation stated that they can help correct that error.  Also, if you haven’t received a vehicle registration renewal since May you may want to either check your vehicle purchase contract or call the same number and verify that your vehicle is registered in the Town and not the City.  In the alternative, when you receive the renewal, you can cross out the word “City” and write the word “Town” in its place and subtract the $20.00 additional fee if you vehicle is kept in the Town.

HIGHWAY V CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

Last Spring, the Columbia County Highway Commissioner, Chris Hardy, informed Lodi Town Chair Tom Marx, that a public informational meeting would be held this fall on Highway V construction. He also informed him that construction on Hwy V from the railroad tracks to Rapp Road would most likely be done in 2017.  At the end of August, Chair Marx was informed that the construction schedule has now been delayed until 2018 or possibly 2019.  Therefore, no work will be done in that area in 2017.


ABSENTEE VOTING IS AVAILABLE AT THE TOWN HALL DURING REGULAR BUSINESS HOURS.
