To the editor:
The wheel tax is necessary. our Clay County costs are going up also, just as they as for all citizens. A large part of this is caused by the high oil prices. What are our roads made of? Oil by-products.
The wheel tax will help to cover some of this expense. I, for one, like the roads in Clay County but they need work and some need to be replaced. The wheel tax will come back to our budget 100 percent and it will all go for road work.
The maximum you will pay is $8 on a vehicle under 2,000 pounds and $16 on vehicles over 2,001 pounds.
All citizens of Clay County have to use the county roads at some time and this is a fair way to acquire this expenditure.
