Sewage Billing News: Understanding the Solid Waste Ordinance establishing the trash fee

Provides overall lower fees and improved sanitary conditions to all eligible dwellings within the city limits.

A dwelling which is eligible to receive a trash fee is a "structure located within the City which includes a room or series of rooms located within a building or mobile home and forming a single habitable unit with facilities, which are used, OR are intended to be used for living, cooking, eating and sleeping".  Examples of eligible dwellings include homes, condominiums, apartment buildings with 4 or less units (trash fee for each separate home, condo or apartment unit).
