County proposes waste assessment in lieu of tipping fees

-A A +A
By Prevatt Lori

At the County Commission meeting July 17, Commissioners were tasked with setting preliminary assessment fees for EMT, fire and solid waste services.

The latter generated much debate among Commissioners and attendees, as the County weighed replacing dumping fees at the county landfill with an assessment fee of $116 for all households.

The final decision on assessments will come at a public hearing on Sept. 6 at 6 p.m. The Commission is then permitted to lower, but not raise, the fee amounts set at the preliminary hearing.

Jeff Rackley, Senior Project Manager at Government Services Inc., put together reports for the Commissioners to review, which were presented at the meeting by his associate Heather Senoza.
According to the reports, Levy County lost revenue from the landfill last year. Levy County previously charged residents an assessment fee of $25 per parcel, but now charges no fee. Levy residents pay a tipping fee of $1.16, while the commercial tipping fee is $61.00.
