4:30p room 354 CCB


13. 52042 Creating Sec. 12.177 of the Madison General Ordinances to establish a City of Madison motor vehicle registration fee.

This ordinance authorizes a local vehicle registration fee as allowed under state law. A $17 fee is anticipated to raise $3.3 million on an annual basis (based on information from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation that there are approximately 194,000 eligible vehicles registered in the City of Madison). Proceeds from a local vehicle registration fee must be used for transportation purposes. Use of the revenues from a local vehicle registration fee requires appropriation by the Common Council through a resolution (e.g., the budget). The state vehicle registration fee is $75 annually. Dane County recently enacted a local vehicle registration fee of $28, effective October 1, 2018. The County fee applies to all eligible vehicles in the county, including eligible vehicles in the City of Madison. A $17 fee levied by the City of Madison would result in a total vehicle registration fee in the City of $120.

Nineteen municipalities and eight counties in Wisconsin have adopted a local vehicle registration fee. Amounts range from $10 to $30 annually. The state Department of Transportation must receive notice of enactment of a local vehicle registration fee at least three months prior to its effective date. As such, a January 1, 2019, effective date for the fee would require adoption of this ordinance by the Council by its September 4th meeting.
