SHERMAN, TX - Sherman residents will soon pay a little more for their trash services but city leaders say it'll save millions in the long run.
The city council approved the increase Monday. They say the extra money will be saved so the city won't have to finance waste disposal services, as they do now. They anticipate they'll be able to pay cash by 2017 which means they'll no longer be paying interest. They say the move will increase an average family's bill by 20 cents a month but the new plan will save taxpayers nearly $2 million dollars over the next 20 years.
