Questions Mount Over Recycling Fee Increase Ordinance

Mayor Mike Houston is already running into opposition over his new proposal to address some of the city’s trash problems.


Houston wants to raise the monthly recycling fee charged to all residents… from 50 cents a month to a dollar-50… and to move that charge to the City Water Light and Power bill.


But some aldermen say that doesn’t do anything to solve the biggest problem… residents who don’t pay for trash pickup and then illegally dump their garbage.


Public works director Mark Mahoney says the city is starting to crack down harder on offenders, 100 homes at a time.
