If you live in the City of Sacramento your garbage bill may go up by about a dollar a month starting in July.
Last night, the Utility Rates Advisory Commission approved a proposal to increase rates each of the next three years.
Steve Harriman with the Department of General Services says there's a $4 million deficit for garbage collection, recycling, and leaf collection services.
"We are required by law to match revenue and expense. And -given that we have not increased rates since July1 of 2010- we have seen increases in a number of areas," says Harriman.
