MOUNT WASHIGTON - Local officials hope a new adjustment to their trash pickup will help alleviate traffic problems on Highway 44.
Mayor Joetta Calhoun told the Mount Washington City Council recently that one bide had been received.
Rumpke, the current city hauler, submitted the lone bid.
However, the rates have gone up.
Laurie Probus, a representative from Rumpke, told the council the franchise fee has increased the cost.
Residents can expect to see an $2.70 increase on their monthly trash/recycling bill starting July 1.
