INDEPENDENCE — While a decision looms on whether Grayson County will impose a new $3 weekly garbage fee on all its residents, the Town of Independence approved its 2009-10 budget on June 16 without accounting for any increase in the amount it pays the county to collect trash.

Independence pays the county $36,000 a year for trash collection inside the town limits, but Grayson supervisors are expected to approve a mandated fee of $3 a week that all county residents — including those in the town limits — would have to pay.
