In Madisonville, sanitation rates could be increasing to offset additional expenses the department racked up in recent years.
However, that rate increase has not been finalized.
According to the first proposal presented Monday, residential customers would still get one trash can per home but would be charged a Solid Waste Collection Fee of $23.75.
That's up from the current $20.00 per month.
Within the proposal, Commercial Rates would increase as well.
That's based on the number and size of the containers being used along with the number of pick-ups per month.
