Putnam County License Plate Fees Increasing

1/10/19 – 5:08 A.M.

The cost for license plates in Putnam County is going up. The Putnam County Sentinel reports the county commissioners approved two separate $5 increases during their first meeting of the year. That means that starting in 2020 it will cost Putnam County residents an extra $10 for license plate renewals.

County Engineer Michael Lenhart says they need the extra fees to help pay for roadway maintenance and repairs. He adds the cost of asphalt is 250 percent more expensive than it was in 2005.
