The Taos Town Council has approved a budget that implements an annual fee for out-of-town cardholders starting July 1, 2013.
On July 1st all card holders will be required to verify residency. Acceptable documentation will be tax documents that give a physical address, lease or rental paperwork that give a physical address, or a utility bill that gives a physical address. The names on the documents need to match a governmental photo ID.
The $10 annual card fee will apply to everybody 19 years of age or older who does not reside within town limits.
Those individuals who are not prepared to pay the $10 fee when at time of check out, will have a one time opportunity to check two items out. They will need to pay the card fee the next time they come in.
