Green Bay City Council fails to pass wheel tax proposal

Local News

Two attempts to implement a wheel tax in the City of Green Bay failed at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.

The plan called for drivers to be charged an extra $20 a year on their vehicle registration.

With an estimated 105,000 drivers, that would amount to over two million dollars a year.

The vote failed with a 5-7 vote.

Then, Alderman David Nennig amended the motion, lowering the wheel tax to $10. That also failed 5-7.

Alderman Nennig says the wheel tax is critical to residents because when a street is repaved, homeowners pay thousands in assessment fees.
