''Bills went up $4.35 per month and residents grumbled, but everyone knew the stakes. “The council’s idea was if we could pay for it up front and get it out of our garbage, we wouldn’t have to increase rates later,” said Kathy Lenz, Sundance’s clerk and treasurer.
And it worked. The town has reduced its garbage by 50 percent, and less garbage means lower bills.''
