The Lane County Board of Commissioners is considering referring a $35 annual vehicle registration fee to the May ballot to help pay for maintenance and safety of County and city roads and bridges. Lane County has more than 1,400 miles of roads and 417 bridges, which together are valued at more than $6 billion. Lane County’s Public Works department has kept roadways well maintained by doing preventive maintenance that helps avoid bigger costs further down the road. In the past, this work has largely been paid for with revenue from timber payments and with reserves. This revenue has been declining steadily due to changes from Congress and our reserves are depleted.
