The Stoneham Board of Selectmen discussed possibly reducing the trash fee at their meeting on Tuesday night at Town Hall.
The Stoneham Board of Selectmen are looking into possibly reducing the town's trash fee. During Tuesday night's Selectmen's session at Town Hall, Town Administrator David Ragucci said that Stoneham has been "trending downward on the tonage" in terms of garbage disposal.
