Improper tagging of trash carries new fine

-A A +A
By The Staff

TELL CITY - Still willing to excuse the occasional mistake but wanting to take a harder line against repeat violators of the city's trash-tagging rules, the Tell City Common Council voted Monday to adopt an ordinance allowing for fines of $5 per bag leveled on trash in which the required tags are missing or have been torn in half or otherwise mutilated.

Details of the new ordinance will be published in the legals section of Monday's issue. The change allows crews to pick up bags that aren't properly tagged and to apply the fines on the customer's next bill.
