ABILENE, TX - After the City Staff held 23 meetings about the street maintenance fee, they got enough feedback to determine the best way to raise 10 million dollars for road work.
Private universities would be charged per student and the fee for the schools and apartments would go into affect July 2018.
Rates for residence and businesses will be different.
City Manager Robert Hanna said, "A business might pay, it would be $185 or $200 dollars, depending on which rate structure they decide to implement. The residential fee could be a tiered system or it could be a flat rate."
This will be voted on by City Council Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017.
