SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Residents in Weber County will soon have to dig a little deeper into their pockets for their vehicle registration.

Weber County commissioners approved a $10 increase this week, becoming the sixth county in the state to raise the rates.

The hike is expected to bring in $1.5 million during the first year, and is dedicated to purchasing land for future roads --- a concept known as corridor preservation.

County officials say no one wants to increase taxes, however they would rather have a small increase now than a huge one in the future.

The increase will take effect in July.
