Trash bid accepted, rates increased


The City of Hartville accepted the trash bid and set new rates during their Jan. 10 meeting held at City Hall. According to drafted meeting minutes, the lone bid opened at the meeting was from Waste Corporation of Missouri, LLC (WCA). It was accepted. The new trash rates for contract billing were discussed. Due to the increase costs and administration fees, Alderperson Karen Brown moved to set trash rates for residential service at $12 per month, commercial service rate at $18.25 per month and a 10% increase on all commercial dumpster service with new billing taking effect in February and reflected in the March billing.
