ThisWeek News: Correction in Refuse Contract Story

Today, ThisWeek News reported that the City's new refuse contract would be charging citizens $4.91 more per month. The facts were confused in the article. In our current contract, residents are billed $25.83. With the new contract, residents will be billed $24.82, resulting in a savings of around $1 per month to Bexley households. ThisWeek News has corrected the article online, but the incorrect article has already been printed and will be circulated to Dispatch customers Thursday, July 17.  If you would like further information about the refuse contract or have any questions, feel free to contact our Service Department at 559-4220.
