Video: Lee County Board Delays Garbage Fee Increase

LEE COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-14,000 Lee residents won’t see an increase in the waste disposal yet.

Yesterday, the Lee county Board of Supervisors voted to delay a vote to increase monthly residential garbage pickup fees from $9 to $12.50.

The fee change has been post poned until the December 2nd board meeting.

Supervisors also plan to increase the commercial rate by 10 percent.

The increase in fees will help keep pace with expenses such as fuel and wear and tear on the Lee County Solid Waste vehicles.
