Mansfield Considering $5 Raise in Automobile Registration
Mansfield City Council is considering a $5 raise in automobile registration to help fund a revitalization of downtown Mansfield. Councilman Cliff Mears says the bump in cost would raise about $220,000 per year and $2.6 million over 12 years. The sale tax fee for Mansfield residents would go from $15 to $20 and if passed, would go into effect in January of 2019. The city would use the money collected for street repairs that has been coming out of the general fund. The general fund money would then go into the fund to help revitalize downtown Mansfield.
