Hernando County proposes higher solid waste fee to pay for landfill space and storm cleanup

The cost of running the Hernando County landfill is going up as officials prepare to open the next section of the facility.images

Property owners received the bad news this week on what this means to their tax bills for 2020 and years to come. For the first year, the increase is 10 percent, but after that, it’s 50 percent over the current fee.

The notice states that after Hurricane Irma, the county learned it does not get full federal reimbursement, so it needs money to be able to recover quickly after a storm.

The new proposed fee is $69.40 for calendar year 2020 and $95.00 for subsequent years.
