October 11--  The price of trash pick-up and water rates is increasing slightly next year in Vidalia.

Monday night the city council approved a dollar a month increase for trash pickup and another dollar a month for water and sewer service.  City manager Bill Torrance says its because the cost of doing city business has been going up. "That goes to help pay for the increased cost of utilities, gas and the increased cost of other activities like the recycling center and the pickup of yard trash ," he said.

The council also okayed the sale of a city-owned home on Julie Drive to Byron Fountain for $120,000 and reappointed Barbara Reid to the Vidalia Housing Authority Board.
