FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The city of Fort Wayne fined Red River even more money for failing to collect thousands of people's trash on time.
The city updated the Red River performance dashboard Friday, the first time since August 8.
It showed the company was fined $122,750 for the month of July.
That's the most the city fined Red River since the fines started in April.
That's compared to 2017 when Republic Services was fined $96,700 for the entire year.
August fines for Red River are still being determined, however the dashboard shows twice as many people had their trash missed that month.
In August, Fort Wayne's city council found Red River was in material breach of contract, allowing mayor Tom Henry to do whatever it takes to solve the issue, including ending Red River's seven year contract.
