Did you get a 2-percent raise this year? Your garbage collector might have.
Harter’s Quick Clean Up will get a 2.1-percent boost in pay for picking up garbage in La Crosse this year.
The service gets an annual cost adjustment based on the consumer price index and 2.1 percent is how much the index jumped in 2017.
The city’s Board of Public Works approved the cost adjustment during a meeting today. Harter’s is in the back end of a seven-year contract with the city for garbage and recycling pick up.
