Council Could Back Bill to Get Temecula $444K in Vehicle Fees

Assembly Bill 1098 would restore vehicle license fees to Temecula, as well as grant some money to newly incorporated cities, such as Wildomar.

The Temecula City Council Tuesday will consider backing a bill that would restore Vehicle License Fees to the city in the amount of $444,823 for fiscal year 2012-13.

The city of Wildomar could also get $1.6 million, out of a $14 million pot that could be set aside for four newly incorporated cities in Riverside County.

AB 1098, sponsored by Wilmer Amina Carter, D-Rialto, was passed by the state Legislature Sept. 1; if approved by the governor, the bill would allow the new cities fees upon which officials counted when the municipalites were incorporated.

The other three cities that stand to benefit from resoration of VLF are Menifee, Eastvale and Jurupa, according to a city staff report.

The council will meet at 7 p.m. in chambers at 41000 Main St., in Old Town.

Your Public Employee Union hard at work to dig deeper in your pockets so some gov't workers can have a Golden Retirement at age 50. No on Prop 30!!

They always seem to find a way to get at our hearts by throwing school in the equation don't you think? If this money were truly going to the schools, our kids would be much better off than they are today. I know we have to give a little in order to get a pinch these days, but I just don't trust what they are telling us. We will pay more money (I'm not close to the 250,000 they speak of) in the long run for as you say, to line the retirement pockets of those about to leave office. I'm all about raising taxes for those who have been getting away with it forever while you and I struggled to make ends meet, but leave the middle class and the lower class out of this equation and I would be for it. In the mean time I'm with you: No on 30!

This is not money from a proposed ballot measure. This is Vehicle License Fee money that Temecula residents pay already and the state just keeps. AB 1098, if signed by the governor, would return some of that money to its source. The money is intended to support public safety in cities.

The story should have made that clear. We're already paying the Vehicle License Fee.

Agreed. Unions are nothing but thuggery these days, let alone a cesspool for entitlement immigrants that want to drain the income of private sector workers.

Well we need everything that we can get at this point. If we could only pull another $450 million out of our hats, we would be fine. [rolls eyes] http://youtu.be/OMKRuJx-bM8

Well, Temecula did not get the money. Thats all we do. We sit around and look for new money so we can pass the bills onto our children. This money should go to our Teachers. Personally, I don't care that our city council did not get this money. They would have given it to a developer to develope more real estate. Not one penny would have gone to our schools or teachers. Not one penny.
