Lower garbage-collection rates = Lower taxes

Another good selling point for prospective buyers goes into effect today October 1st, 2013.

"The City Commission is pleased to announce that Weston solid waste collection rates are being significantly reduced, which will result in more money in your pocket," according to a news release from the city.

"Residential automated curbside service will go from $226.94 a year to $163.26 a year, for a reduction of 28 percent. Multi-family residential container rates are charged by the cubic yard and will be reduced from $8.28 to $6.52 per cubic yard, for a reduction of 21 percent. Commercial container rates will go from $16.73 to $8.34 per cubic yard, for a reduction of 50 percent."

Weston will have the lowest or near the lowest solid waste collection rates in Broward County according to David Keller, assistant city manager and CFO.
