Overland to help residents pay trash bills

Overland City Hall will be helping needy residents pay their trash bills, thanks to an allocation of funds approved Monday night. The Overland City Council endorsed setting aside $50,000 to help needy residents pay their trash bills.

At least one councilman questioned the propriety of such a move, which produced a split vote. The program isn't expected to put a strain on city finances; Overland is projected to receive about $800,000 in settlements from cellular telephone companies doing business in the city.
