Clackamas County to establish public committee to advise on use of revenue from newly-approved countywide vehicle registration fee

Vehicle registration fee approved by Clackamas County Board; Will help meet local transportation needs

The Clackamas County Board of Commissioners has approved an ordinance setting a $30 per year countywide vehicle registration fee (VRF). The action followed a second public hearing Thursday.

The VRF will apply to cars, pick-up trucks, vans and other passenger vehicles registered in Clackamas County. The fee for motorcycles will be $15 per year. Since Oregonians pay vehicle registration fees two years at a time, that is a potential increase of $60 every two years for most motorists and $30 every two years for motorcyclists.
