The Cost Recovery Program
By Gavin Johnson, WCJB TV20 News
Earlier this year the Williston City Council approved a plan to charge drivers $175 for getting into car wrecks. But after a three, two vote council members decided to repeal the ordinance. It's called the cost recovery program. It's designed to bring money into cities and help pay for police departments, by charging drivers a fee everytime they get into an accident.
Chiefland adopted the cost recovery program back in January and the police chief says the city is 12-thousand dollars richer because of it.
The fee is totally optional, you don't have to pay it. Belleview and Starke also have the cost recovery program. But more cities trying to compensate for small budgets could get the program.
