A Tuesday decision by the Frederick County Commissioners will leave local builders with one less fee to worry about and the county with one less source of funding for bridge and road expansion. In a 3-1 vote, the commissioners dropped the excise tax rate to zero, a reduction that could cause certain transportation projects to fall behind schedule, according to county staff.
