Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - The vote was five in favor, four against the trash fee increase, but it needed six votes to pass.
Voting yes was Jim Brown, Sean Allen, Mark Rinne, Georgia Broyles, and Mayor Rick Kaysen. Voting no was Dicky Shanor, Jimmy Valdez, Mike Luna and Annette Williams.
Councilman Bryan Cook was out of town on job duties but told NewsChannel 5 Monday night he would've voted yes.
The trash increase would have gone toward operating costs like gas and equipment. The fee would have also gone toward expanding the Happy Jack Landfill.
Stay tuned to CBS News Channel 5 for whats next in terms of trash.
