Jackson Council Approves ACES Rate Increase

The Jackson City Council has voted to move forward with a rate increase for garbage pick-up at their meeting last night.  The Council voted to approve an increase of 8% a year for the next three years at the request of ACES waste services. According to ACES the increases are to keep pace with inflation and to match “industry standards.” A typical residence in Jackson that currently pays $18.39 a month for service will see an increase of $1.47 next year and $4.78 after three years. The increase will be subject to a Proposition 218 hearing, which allows city ratepayers to block the increase by protesting.  The Council also approved new Memorandum of Understanding with its primary employee union, setting the terms for most of the city's employees, as well as an amendment to the agreement with the City's firefighters, adjusting the work schedule for the fire department.  Finally the Council approved a contract to allow cattle to graze on City property. Morgan livestock will pay the city $4,440 per year to place cattle on the Oro De Amador property.
