Suburban Tax on Traffic
The city council in Mission, Kansas, a Kansas City suburb, "voted 7-1 to start charging fees based on how much traffic properties produce instead of relying heavily on unstable property and sales taxes....
"City officials and some local experts believe the fee would be the first in Kansas as well as the entire Midwest.
"The new fee is intended to affect properties that produce the most traffic and put the most stress on roads. It affects roughly 5,650 developed or developable properties."
