If the upcoming second reading is approved by City Council, Friendswood households will see an 18-cent per month increase in waste collection fees.
City Council on March 2 approved the first reading of the ordinance adjusting rates for solid waste collection with its provider, IESI, now Progressive Waste Solutions.
The annual adjustment includes a 1.1 percent increase based on the Consumer Price Index, with no increase for fuel prices.
In addition, families using a 95-gallon recycle cart will see a 2-cent increase for that service.
City Council meets on the first Monday of the month beginning at 4:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, 910 S. Friendswood Dr.
