Meeting in regular session Monday evening, Edgerton Village Council discussed concerns residents had about the proposed change in trash service. According to the Bryan Times, the village’s current contracts for trash and recycling pick-up, along with the two large trash pick-ups, cost the village approximately $30,000 a year.
Because of the village’s budget deficit, plans are being made to cancel the village’s contracts with its two current service providers and replace them with one service provider who will bill residents directly.
Opting out will not be a choice in residential neighborhoods.
If a resident lets trash pile up, the village will remove it and then will file a lien on the property.
Estimates are that the village will eliminate $80,000 of the deficit annually for the next three years by making the switch.
