For months, there has been buzz about whether or not a pay-as-you-throw program might come to town and residents will finally get an answer later this month when the budget comes out.
Asked whether such a program will be recommended as part of the budget, Town Manager Dan Morgado answered simply that his budget "will come out Jan. 25."
In other words: wait and see.
There are no separate hearings scheduled at this point for trash issues, but any discussion would take place as part of the budget hearings, which begin in early February, he said. Pay-as-you-throw varies by community, but often residents are asked to pay a fee for each trash bag put out. Recycling is free.
