A wheelage fee will not be coming to Saint Louis County after a board decision Tuesday.
The tax would have charged people a $10 dollar wheelage fee on vehicles raising about $1.5 million annually for road projects.
Commissioners said many Saint Louis County residents were in opposition of the tax.
A wheelage tax has long been an option for counties near the metro area. The 2013 legislature expanded the option for all counties with a deadline of August 1.
The tax could be taken up again next year.
