It’s going to cost you more to put out an extra trash can in Gibsons.
The increase is part of a package of changes to various rates, fees and charges Town Council is making for 2014.
Councillor Lee Ann Johnson argued Tuesday night that the original proposal for a $2.50 fee was too low, because the whole point should be to discourage people from creating more trash. Council voted to go with $3 even.
The new fee list also includes 25 cents-a-litre for filling water bottles at Well Number 1; that’s up 5 cents. The Town started charging for the un-chlorinated water a few years ago to encourage conservation and recover costs.
