PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The Hughes County Commission is raising the county’s wheel tax on large vehicles to generate more money for upkeep of roads and bridges.

The tax on vehicles weighing more than 6,000 pounds will go from $2 per wheel to $5 per wheel, and from a maximum of four wheels to as many as a dozen. That means the maximum wheel tax per vehicle will go from $8 to $60.

Opponents have the option of trying to refer the ordinance to a public vote. If that doesn’t happen, the tax increase will take effect at the beginning of next year.
