Kudos to the Davis County Commission for voting against the $10 motor-vehicle registration fee increase. In an article in today's Deseret Morning News it says, "Council members agreed on the wisdom of buying land now, but said the state is in charge of obtaining land for and building state roads, and the counties shouldn't get stuck with the bill." Way to avoid the trap placed by the state. They are attempting to balance their budget by having the counties come up with a large sum to help buy property for future roads.
Why should the counties have to foot the bill when historically property for state roads has been paid for by the state? This just doesn't make sense, especially in a year when the state is dealing with such a large surplus.
