South Whitehall Increases Trash Collection Fees by 20 percent

In order to keep up with a $63,000 increase in hauling fees charged to the township, South Whitehall Commissioners vote to increase trash collection fees.


South Whitehall Commissioners voted to increase trash collection fees 20 percent -from $286 a year to $344 - during their meeting Wednesday night.

Township Director of Administration Tony Ganguzza told commissioners that the hauling fee portion of the township's five-year contract, which is set to expire at the end of 2013, is going up by $63,000 next year.

Board president Christina Morgan said the increase is a "necessary requirement" in order to ensure the service and quality of work.

Upper Macungie just lowered their garbage and recycling fees from $348 to $288. Lower taxes, cheaper fees in Upper Macungie, and they have their own police force too with just about the same amount of residents. Seems like South Whitehall has too many employees and poor commissioner leadership, remember to vote out Morgan and Johns in 2013

when Osborne and Ellsworth left it went downhill fast, Jaindl and Pidcock have alot of control over this board, the cronyism on this board is sickening

I just read the budget at the township building, can you believe they gave away 37000 to various charities this year? charities not even helping South Whitehall but Lehigh County is general. Read the Budget! They are buying a 100k+ tractor for leaf picking up and a 500k mobile command unit.... why?
