Council votes to increase penalties on late garbage payments

WINFIELD -  In an effort to rein in the late payment of garbage bills, the Winfield City council passed a resolution that increases the monetary penalty on a late payment.
“Mayor, we’re having some issues with people not paying their garbage bills in a timely manner,” Winfield City Attorney Todd Atkinson said, introducing the resolution at the council’s Tuesday, April 2, meeting.

“The most telling and informative part of this resolution is the last page under suspension of services,” Atkinson said holding a copy of the resolution.
