GARBAGE FEE BILLING CHANGES
NOTICE FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT
The property tax bills that were sent out by the Revenue Commissioner in October 2022 did not include a garbage fee. Circumstances beyond our control are forcing us to implement a more flexible billing system.
THERE IS NO INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF THE GARBAGE FEE.
The annual garbage fee is $222.00/year and has been at that price since 2020.
The Lee County Commission has been and remains committed to implementing the curbside cart system with NO CHANGE in the amount of the garbage fee for a period of at least two years.
You have several options for paying your garbage bill:
1) pay $222 when you receive your October - December statement
2) pay $55.50 and you will be billed quarterly at $55.50 per quarter.
You can pay your garbage bill using the following options:
1) Cash (walk in only)
2) Money Order
4) Debit card
5) Credit card
A $3.00 service fee will be applied to E-check, and credit or debit card payments. Please do not mail cash.
You will be able to pay your bill online at www.leeco.us, by U.S. mail, or in person in the office between the hours of 7:30am and 2:30pm CST Monday through Friday. Please note the office is closed on County-observed holidays.
With these changes, the Environmental Services Office is anticipating a very high call volume over the next several weeks. If you call and are unable to get through, please leave a message during our normal business hours or try your call again later. Calls will be returned in the order they are received. We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience during this time.
