The cost of garbage is going up.

The Commission had total revenues of $736,119 for the year ended June 30, 2012, an 18% increase over the prior year. Revenues included gate fees of $595,009 and county and city assessments of $124,477.

The increase in revenue is primarily due to an increase in gate fees. The increase in expenses is primarily due to an increase in salaries and benefits, equipment repair and supplies and fuel and oil.
