The increase was requested by the village’s trash hauler PIG of Hager City due to increased charges at local landfills. The increase was recommended by the solid waste committee and was adopted unanimously by the board members, all of whom were present. However, fire charges for the village are set to go down. Board members heard a report on the latest Ellsworth Fire Service Association meeting Sept. 16.
