Folks in Tallahassee will see the city's new budget impact their utility bills soon. Rates for solid waste disposal have increased as a part of the city's new budget. The rate increased from a monthly fee of 15 dollars, 30 cents to 15 dollars, 91 cents for residential service. That's an increase of about 4%.

"It's actually been a number of years since we've changed rates in particular to our residential customers since 1992... so 16 years now," says Reese Goad, the Director of Tallahassee's Utility Business and Services.

The solid waste fee for commercial service also increased by about 4%, but the new rate will include recycling. Currently, commercial properties have to pay an additional fee for recycling.

    Why don't we all get pay increases to go with all of the rising costs that we have to deal with. I honestly don't know how people who live off of minimum wage survive.
