Sycamore residents facing higher garbage fees

Sycamore residents facing higher garbage fees

SYCAMORE, GA - Sycamore residents will pay more for trash service next year. Rates will increase from $19 to $19.50.

Mayor Wayne Woodruff says the Crisp County Waste Authority gave notice of the 32 cent increase in October. The city government added the extra 18 cents to save citizens from another increase in 2016.

"If they send a notice saying they're going up again next year, then we've got enough to cover that increase to where we don't have to go up on the citizens of sycamore again next year." said Sycamore Mayor Wayne Woodruff.

The rate is only for Sycamore, not the rest of Turner County.
