Garbage pick-up prices will rise starting July 1, but could be locked in until June 30, 2014.
The current rate per month for garbage pick-up is $13.78.
According to county judge-executive John Settles, the new rate would rise to $13.99, but would do away with the fuel surcharge.
“However, in negotiations, (Rumpke) presented $14.25 and we negotiated down to this,” Settles said.
Under the current contract, the rate started at $13, but had three levels of three-percent increases built in to cover the cost of gas.
