Fredericksburg Residents Protest Trash Bin Violations

A Fredericksburg woman is upset over a fine she received because her trash bin was slightly overfilled. The fine totaled $138 plus court costs, and the violation was placed in her mailbox with no warning. The Fredericksburg Standard reports she’s not alone, and 300 other residents also received citations. Most of the citations were for bins with lids that wouldn’t close completely. Mayor Linda Langerhans said the residents’ complaints will be looked into further and staff will come back to the Fredericksburg City Council with recommendations about the future.
