MIDLAND - Folks in Midland will soon have to dig deeper in their pockets to pay utility bills.

The City has announced landfill and garbage rates are going up about $2.00 dollars a month.

They say the increase will help cover the cost of opening a new cell at the landfill.

There's also a two-and-a-half-cent rise in water and sewer rates.
