EDCO Asks For Rate Increase

LA MESA -- It may soon cost a bit more to have your garbage hauled away.

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, council members will be asked to set a public hearing date to consider an increase in the monthly charges Edco gets for residential and commercial services in the city.

EDCO is proposing a 3.6 percent increase in residential service and a 2 percent increase for commercial clients. This would be the first increase since 2009 and, if approved, would take effect July 1.

The council will be asked Tuesday to set a public hearing for the proposed increases on June 25th.

Edco is one company who gives you more than your money's worth in today's world of inflation.  The trash collectors have always been friendly and patient--not an easy task dealing with the masses.

Whilst any and all rate increases tend to stick in the craw, some are justified and in this case generally agreed upon.  Edco has shown for years that it is a dependable business, concerned for the communities it serves and quite often goes out of its way to service customers. The increase sought is meager and I support it.

I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Schmitz.
And Edco is a wonderful company:
great people.

Less that $20 a month for someone to take all my garbage away every week.  Sounds like a deal to me.  And they are supporters of many worthy causes in the communities they serve to boot.
