If you look at your latest Pleasanton Garbage bill you will notice the rates went up 5%. However, Pleasanton Garbage is only getting 4% of it. The City of Pleasanton added a 1% tax to your garbage and they buried it in the increase. This was the first I knew that the city added a garbage tax. When did this come before the city council? I have not seen any articles about this new Pleasanton tax either.
Our state income taxes have gone up, state sales tax has gone up, there is now a 1% tax on lumber that was added without most people's knowledge, and now a Pleasanton garbage tax.
