Frontenac Says Free Trash Service May be Dumped

Aldermen in Frontenac say they may soon have to begin paying for trash service. The trash fee would be $30 a month per household and would generate about $500,00o annually.

Information was not available as to the type and extent of services provided (trash/recycling/yard waste, etc.). Frontenac residents may be joining the protest lines being formed by many other county residents.

    Nothing is Free. Someone has been paying, taxes or fees were collected from somewhere to pay the trash fees. Could be, Frontenac is feeling the same economic down turn as others.

    Trash/Recycle service is as essential as water, sewer, electric, gas and telephone. Someone has to pay for it.

    The City of Florissant has recently passed and put onto the November ballot new business fee increases that go up as much as 400 to 500% on annual business fees.
    One example is, waste permit fees will increase from $300 annually to $1200 annually.
