Residents soon will be paying $3.91 more each month for trash collection. City Council members are blaming the increase on Orange County, which increased its landfill fees by 54% to compensate for funds lost in the Dec. 6 bankruptcy.

La Habra's monthly trash fee will rise to $14.

A plan to revive the city's Fourth of July fireworks show has won preliminary approval from the City Council. The La Habra Firefighters Assn. used to sponsor an annual fireworks show but stopped 15 years ago because the event was not profitable, city officials said. This year, the city will consider co-sponsorship. City Council members said that a fireworks show might discourage residents from illegally lighting fireworks at their homes, which has been an increasing problem.
