POINTE COUPEE, LA (NBC33) — Point Coupee residents could be paying more for garbage collection, soon.
The Parish Police Jury has voted to increase rates from $14.50 to $18.00 per month.
Parish leaders tell NBC33 News that the increase now should help residents avoid an increase next year.
We're told the garbage rate increase will help defray the costs of cleaning up after major storms.
The parish has a garbage collection contract with IESI, which is based in Houma.
