An Auburn City Council ad hoc committee meets at 4 p.m., Monday, April 24 in the Council Chambers at Auburn City Hall to consider the full spectrum of issues related to the proposed $20 tab fee.

Responding to public pressure, Auburn’s Transportation Benefit District (TBD), composed of every member of the City Council, on Feb. 22 tabled further action on the car tab fee it had approved on Dec. 13.

State law allows a TBD to impose a car tab fee without a public vote.

The ad-hoc committee, composed of four members of the council, is working with Auburn’s finance director to scout alternative funding for the $800,000 year the TBD estimated would flow in from the car tab fee.

The committee will also approve meeting minutes and talk about the scheduling of future meetings.
