Altus trash service fee increases

ALTUS, Okla._Residents in Altus can expect an increase in their monthly trash collection fee.

Residents will be charged an extra $2 each month, while businesses can expect a $2 per dumpster increase. The Altus Municipal Authority voted in favor of the increases during Tuesday's meeting.

In a phone interview, City Manager David Fuqua said the city has spent nearly $140,000 on repairs to trash trucks alone. Fuqua says the money will allow the city to buy new trucks, instead of continually repairing the old ones.

Residents should expect to see the new rates included on their next bill.
