Houston County Garbage Late Fees
The Houston County Commission voted this morning to get tough on people who fail to pay their garbage bill.
The county commission approved a resolution that will put a late payment policy in place.
The program will involve cans being picked up if residents do not pay their bill within 90 days.
If the county removes cans, residents must bring their garbage bill up to date as well as pay a $50 penalty in order to get the cans back.
"It’s really easy,” said Houston County Commission Chairman. “Everybody just pay the bill and there won't be any issues."
