License Plates Approved by Supervisors; 350 Commitments Needed
Jan. 29, 2013
Want to drive around in style and show some civic pride for Fairfax County?
Then soon you’ll be able to get a special Fairfax County license plate. Today, the Board of Supervisors approved the design for a county license plate that features the county seal, county map and the website addresses of the government and Visit Fairfax.
The plate will cost $25 a year. By state law, $10 is retained by the state while the other $15 goes back to the license plate sponsor after 1,000 plates are ordered. The Board of Supervisors voted to direct the initial proceeds toward the 2015 World Police and Fire Games that will be held in the county. The World Police and Fire Games are an international sporting event offering thousands of police officers, firefighters, customs and correction officers from around the world an opportunity to showcase their athletic excellence in over 65 sporting events. These games are the second largest sporting event in the world after the Summer Olympics.
Before the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles can proceed with plate production, it needs 350 commitments from the community. Visit Fairfax will soon allow you to sign up for one of the first license plates at www.fxva.com.
