PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — The Portsmouth Town Council will discuss increasing the Transfer Station sticker fee at the next meeting on Monday, Nov. 25.
Town Administrator Rich Rainer is proposing a Transfer Station sticker fee of $191 for the next year, along with a reduction of one employee’s hours.
The current 2019 sticker fee is $180, with the second sticker per household remaining at $10. The proposed 2020 Transfer Station sticker fee is an increase of 6.1% or $11 per household.
The town administrator’s proposed fee, however, is subject to reducing one employee’s hours. Without reducing one employee’s hours, the proposed price would be $207, a 15% increase.
According to the proposal, the higher sticker fee is required to offset an increase in operating costs.
