The Shreveport City Council will again debate a proposed $7 trash pickup fee.
The Council was supposed to decide on the fee earlier this month but postponed that decision.
Now, the discussion is back on the table for this week’s work session and could be voted on in Tuesday’s regular meeting.
If the Council approves, the fee will begin in April.
The $7 is less than the $18 Mayor Adrian Perkins called for in January.
The City Council will also debate creating a ‘Solid Waste Enterprise Fund‘.
