Georgia Supreme Court to Take a Look at Gwinnett Trash Plan – Loganville Patch

Loganville resident Verlin Gilliam was not successful in his attempt to challenge the law and nor was Snellville resident Robert Mesteller.

But Mesteller is not giving up.

According to the Gwinnett Daily Post, Mesteller’s attorney, Chris McClurg, will argue the case in front of the Georgia Supreme Court Monday. This is an appeal to a Superior Court judgment on the issue that went against Mesteller in September. Mesteller contends that a fee, as in the case of solid waste collection, is not a tax and should not be added to a tax bill.
