City of Meridian considers fee increases

Meridian is considering increasing the fees a resident must pay to remove the boot from their car or retrieve their pet from the pound.

The car fees were last updated in 2019 and the impound fees in 2013.

The Idaho Press reports, for the car fees an increase from $100 to $150 has been requested by Deep Six Security Services.

For the pet impound fees, the city council is looking at raising the fees to $50 for a dog, $75 for a vicious dog or bite case, and $15 for a cat.

The next steps for the council are to hold a public hearing on the impound fees.
