The current in-city and out-of-city trash rates are listed as $15.90 and $17.90, according to the release. Following approval, the new rates will be listed as $18.94 and $20.94, or a 19.12% and 16.98% increase, respectively.
The city's current trash and recycling services—trash pickup once weekly and recycling pickup every other week—will not change with the rate increase, according to a Feb. 11 city news release on the then-proposed rate increase. The rate change will go into effect March 1.
