MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)– The Madison Common Council passed a new $40 wheel tax for city residents Tuesday night, the highest of its kind in Wisconsin.
Alders voted 11-8 in favor of the tax, according to council members NBC15 reached out to.
Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway proposed the vehicle registration tax in her 2020 budget proposal, in an attempt to fill a budget whole and fund works such as transit upgrades.
The mayor estimates the tax hike will generate almost $8 million for the city.
