Livermore Sanitation Rates May Increase

City Council to hold public hearing on proposed rate increases for Livermore Sanitation.

Heads up. Trash pickup soon may cost you more.

The City Council on Monday will hold a public hearing Monday on increasing  rates to help offset budget shortfalls the waste management company has experienced the past two years.

Livermore Sanitation is proposing a 19 percent fee increase for 20- and 32-gallon container residential customers and a 14 percent increase for all other customers, according to city staff reports.

If the council approves the proposed rates, Livermore residents would pay $13.76 for a 20-gallon container and $22.96 for a 30- to 36-gallon container.

If approved, the new rates would take effect July 1.

Monday's council meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the , 3575 Pacific Ave.

Jim: I don't give a $#!% when you moved here, that doesn't give you any more rights than the next resident. Get your priorities straight. More and more gang activity is apparent in Livermore. Dead bodies are being found accross town on a regular basis. The city council is crooked, corrupt and incompetent. You want to moan and cry over your garbage bill?? Take your entitlement mentality and shove it.

Chris: What it gives me is a perspective and history you obviously have no sense of. Your youth is apparent. At least you got some part of this right about the city council. If you are worried about the gangs and dead bodies, you are welcome to take your foul mouth and move to Mexico

It's unfortunate that you are so inept at money management that you cannot budget yourself accordingly to pay a rate that is still under what the rest of the neighboring cities incur. Thanks for admiring my youth and observation. Now, why would I want to move to Mexico when I can AFFORD TO LIVE IN LIVERMORE? What perspective and history have you referenced about this issue? None. You want something for nothing and are going to continue to cry about it.
