Our city council has finally done something about it.
Here's councilman Lifferth's comments on the issue.
I wanted to follow up to your issue of the fuel surcharge.
This has been discussed by the mayor, staff, and council.
The fuel surcharge is based on the cost of diesel fuel and is paid based on the previous month cost. There is no fuel surcharge if diesel is priced at $2.40 or less.
Because the cost of fuel has "thankfully" declined, the fuel surcharge is schedule to decline as well.
If fuel continues to decline there will be no fuel surcharge in the coming months.
