Our media partner, the San Jose Mercury News, reports that garbage bills in Redwood City could go up by three percent if the city council approves a proposal later this month.
Under the new rate proposals, the typical monthly bill for 32 gallon bins would go up 79 cents to $27.30.
There will be a public hearing on February 25 followed by a vote. And if the council approves the rate increase, it would go into effect the next day.
The city raised rates by 7 percent last year and 18 percent the year before.
