According to a report from Bell County Tax Collector, Shay Luedeke, a total of 303,090 eligible vehicles registered in the county were issued a $1.50 Child Safety Fee during the 2022 fiscal year.
The total amount from the Child Safety Fees rose to $463,635, which is a one-percent increase from the 2021 fiscal year.
According to Texas law, the funds that are allocated have to be used for Crossing Guard Programs.
School Districts with no Crossing Guard Programs are able to use these funds on other things to help children such as drug and alcohol abuse prevention, child abuse prevention and nutrition.
