The City of Asheville may soon increase a list of fees that cover everything from trash collection, water to parking. City council meets Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. to debate whether to increase rates to help balance the budget which faces a $1.9 million dollar deficit.
The city says higher fees are an alternative to higher property taxes. The rate increases include a one-percent water rate increase, a $7 a month trash fee and a raise in parking rates by $.25 an hour.
