From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:
The St. Andrews Public Service District (PSD) fire chief Mark Schrade announced at Monday night's meeting to hold enforcement of crash tax fees until further notice. In May Public Service District commissioners unanimously voted to implement the motor vehicle service fee ordinance that would charge out-of-area travelers involved in accidents a fee when the PSD is called upon to respond.
PCI's Regional manager Oyango Snell released this statement:
"PCI is pleased with the chief's announcement to postpone the crash tax for now. While we are sympathetic to local officials looking for ways to increase revenue without raising taxes, this implementation of a crash tax is not the right answer...PCI will continue to work with the St. Andrews District and South Carolina lawmakers to come up with the best solution."
