By  | 

Shawnee County Refuse is suggesting a rate increase.

Shawnee County Commissioners will consider a five-percent rate increase at their meeting Thursday.

The one-can monthly rate for city customers would be $11.71. In the county, it would go up to $12.77.

In his memo to commissioners, Refuse Director Steve Bolton says the proposed increase amounts to 16-cents a week for city customers; 18-cents a week for those in the county.
