Elkhart County Landfill Manager John Bowers discusses a rate increase proposal with the county council Saturday.

GOSHEN — County officials are considering landfill rate increases of $5 to $10 for certain users over a five-year period.

The Elkhart County Council on Saturday had its first look at a proposal for increasing landfill fees, which it tabled after some discussion. The gradual rate increases came out of a meeting of the finance committee, and the ordinance would need a formal introduction and public hearing before it can be passed.
