Piedmont City Council members have approved a gas tax increase from $.01 per gallon to $.02. The increase is expected to generate additional revenue of $80,000 per year. This additional revenue will be used for paving city streets.
Piedmont previously had the lowest gas tax rates in the region. With the new $.02 per gallon rate, Piedmont will now be in line with communities in its region. The approved gas tax will go into effect in Piedmont starting next month.
