The City of Richland will delay opening offices and facilities until 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 30, 2017, for an annual all-employee meeting. Richland City Hall, Administrative Annex, Development Services Building, Richland Community Center, Fire and Police Offices, Human Resources, Shops Facilities, Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants, and Horn Rapids Landfill are all affected. The Richland Public Library will open at its regularly scheduled time of 9:30 a.m.
Police, fire and emergency services personnel will continue to respond to emergency calls.
The City Council unanimously approved the formation of the TBD on March 21, 2017. Assuming subsequent approval of a funding ordinance, collection of the vehicle license renewal fees will begin in January 2018.
Will the TBD and vehicle fee expire once the Duportail Bridge is paid for?
Yes. The fee will sunset when the debt issued to fund the Duportail Bridge is retired. The sunset provision will allow a future City Council to reassess its funding solution for the Pavement Preservation Program.
