RALEIGH - The Raleigh City Council voted 7-1 on August 10th to raise Raleigh's motor vehicle fee to $25, which is a 25% increase.
The motor vehicle fee had been $20. The NC General Assembly had previously approved of the fee hike, giving the City of Raleigh the authority to raise the fee by $5.
According to the city, the extra revenue generated from the fee increase must be used for transportation purposes.
The increase in the fees will result in an estimated $1.4 million a year for the city transportation budget. ::
