BIG SPRING - An increase in the user fee at the Big Spring City landfill was discussed at Tuesday night's City Council meeting.

Back in 2013, the council had voted 4-3 against the proposed user fee increase.

Mayor Larry McLellan asked members to reconsider the increase at the landfill.

There would be a price hike of $3 and would help pay for opening a new landfill in the future.

Before making a decision, council members say they want to wait for results of a new study.

That new study will be surveying the city's overall handling of solid waste, trash pick-ups and their delivery to the landfill.
