PUBLIC NOTICE:  Heretofore, effective September 5, 2013, the Board of Supervisors of Marion County, Mississippi, established an assessment for the collection of garbage at all commercial sites using one 96-gallon cart in the amount of $20.00 per month per 96-gallon cart as a fee to defray the cost of establishing and operating the garbage and/or rubbish disposal system in and for Marion County, Mississippi.  Due to increased operating costs, the sum of $20.00 per month is no longer adequate.  Accordingly, notice is hereby given of the intent to increase the fee by $5.00 per month effective April 1, 2018, for a total fee of $25.00 per month per 96-gallon cart to be assessed against each small commericial site lying within the unincorporated area of Marion County, Mississippi, as a fee to be paid to Marion County, Mississippi, to help defray the cost of operating and maintaining the garbage and/or rubbish disposal system in and for Marion County, Mississippi.  The purpose of the proposed increase of $5.00 per month is neccessary to offset increased operating expenses.  This matter will be discussed and acted upon by the Board of Supervisors of Marion County, Mississippi, at a meeting to be held in the Board Room of the Marion County Board of Supervisors, 215 Broad Street, Columbia, Mississippi, on January 16, 2018, at 10:00 A.M.
