College Station City Council will meet Monday to discuss a resolution to support an increase in Brazos County vehicle registration fees.

City staff recommends the new $10 fee for Brazos County residents’ vehicle registration to help fund the Brazos County Regional Mobility Authority(RMA). The RMA funds will be used to support transportation projects in Brazos County. For a passenger truck, this fee will represent a 12.57% increase in yearly registration costs.

The RMA’s initial project is the 1.2-mile section of SH 60, University Drive, adjacent to Texas A&M University. The proposed project would improve pedestrians’ and bicyclists’ safety and significantly improve Wellborn Road mobility to the east of College Avenue. 

The cost of living has been rising in the Brazos Valley due to increased house prices and property tax increases. College Station is now only 1.1% below the state average in the cost of living index.
