Garbage http://tspr.org en Burlington Could Raise Garbage Fees http://tspr.org/post/burlington-could-raise-garbage-fees <p>Burlington residents could soon pay more to get rid of their garbage.</p><p>City Manager Jim Ferneau says the base fee is $12.10/month.&nbsp; He says that does include recycling and inclusion in a city-wide clean-up.</p><p>The fee does not appear to be enough to balance the $2-million sanitation budget, which is carrying a roughly $220,000 shortfall.</p><p>Ferneau says part of the reason for that is the city has only adjusted the monthly rate based on increasing tipping fees at the local landfill.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 13 Aug 2012 02:45:24 +0000 Jason Parrott 19865 at http://tspr.org Burlington Could Raise Garbage Fees
