Albany passes 2019 budget, adding new fee

Local
Albany residents will expect a $90 trash fee come 2019.
 
A majority of council members voted for the measure Monday night, but the vote did not pass without opposition.
 
Apartment owners already pay a trash fee. Now, the bill is being added to the roughly 13,500 single-family homes.
 
This will add a little more than 1.2 million to the city’s pocketbooks.
 
With the looming closure of the city’s landfill in 2026, the city faces more income issues ahead.
