PUBLIC MEETING FEBRUARY 9th, at 5:00 the Twisp Town Council will hold a public meeting, as part of our regular Council meeting, to take comments (up to 3 minutes) on the establishment of a Transportation Benefit District (TBD). As defined in RCW 36.73, a town or city may establish a Transportation Benefit District in order to respond to the special transportation needs of their entity. The governing board of the district (Twisp Town Council) may impose by a majority vote a $20 fee to be levied on vehicle registration renewals of citizens who live in the town limits. The fee would be paid the Department of Licensing and remitted to the Town. Due to the hard work of the last two years, Twisp has secured funding for the following 2016 major street projects: Twisp Avenue from SR20 to Lincoln Street is a Federal funded sidewalk and bicycle lane project. SR20 from Wagner Street to Airport Road is a Federal funded sidewalk and bicycle lane project. Repaving of Burton Street and Riverside Avenue is a State funded project. However, several more street improvement projects are needed for 2017 and beyond. In addition, most of these segments of streets will need improvements to the water and sewer system and as such will require multiple funding sources. An aggressive effort by Twisp Public Works was launched in 2015 to improve pot holes of town streets, which is intended to continue in 2016. As in 2015, funds will be needed to finance any temporary fixes until permanent street repairs can be made. The establishment of a TBD would provide a means to fund the temporary street repairs, emergency repairs, and any required match by other funding sources. Persons wishing to view information on a Transportation Benefit District would go to http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/ and view the Revised Code of Washington Title 36.73. 39
