At its Aug. 2 meet-
ing, the Boardman City
Council passed Resolution
17-2016, a resolution in-
creasing the city’s garbage
rate beginning Oct. 1, 2016.
The increase is in response
to a rate increase by the
city’s garbage contractor,
Sanitary Disposal, Inc. of
Hermiston. Mike Jewett of
Sanitary Disposal told the
council they were increas-
ing the fee to the city due
to an increase in operating
expenses for Boardman, at
about 7.2 percent overall.
This is the first increase
in garbage rates in Board-
man since 2013. The cost of
a 90-gallon residential cart
will go from $11 per month
to $12.10 per month. Other
types of garbage services
will increase anywhere
from one percent to 14 per-
cent. For more information,
please contact Boardman
City Hall.
