Due to rising fuel costs and pursuant to the City of Slidell’s Solid Waste Disposal agreement with Coastal Environmental Services, the Slidell City Council has authorized a fuel surcharge recovery fee not to exceed $2 per month. The fuel surcharge will appear on the September 2022 sewer and water bills and on subsequent bills.
This decision was made by the Slidell City Council after careful review and public input. The surcharge is based on the consumption of fuel that is used on routes inside the city limits and is determined by the actual cost of diesel over $3.50 per gallon. The fee will vary month by month, depending on the cost of fuel, and if the price goes below $3.50, the surcharge will go away unless the cost of diesel rises again.
