At a Board of Health meeting on June 7, 2016, the Board voted 4-0-1 to increase sticker fees for residential, commercial and visitor use of the Transfer Station. These changes were effective immediately (that is, on June 8, 2016). Residential stickers for Truro property owners are now $100, with stickers for second and third cars and replacement stickers at $25 each. Other fees for commercial use and for renters can be found on the Truro website at http://www.truro-ma.gov/transfer-station or here. We had requested a less sharp increase and an effective date of no earlier than July 1. Others commented as well, and one raised an issue that the BoH may take up in 2016-17: why we have stickers fees for taxpayers at all when all other safety and health costs such as Police, Fire, and EMS are covered entirely by the Town’s operating budget. Interesting question. We will keep you posted on Town responses as they develop.
