From: DC Maudlin, Interim Director of Public Works

 

Subject: Resolution Amending the Rate Schedule for Residential Solid Waste Collection, Reducing the Monthly Fee by $2.00

 


Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends amending the solid waste rate schedule for single family residential solid waste collection to reduce the monthly fee by $2.00

 

Analysis:

The solid waste fund provides residential and commercial solid waste collection services to the citizens of Leesburg. The City Commission, at the July 22nd meeting, authorized purchase of a 28 cubic yard, automatic loading, garbage truck. The increased capacity and efficiency provided by this truck will allow consolidation of two residential routes, turn in of one residential collection truck, transfer of one truck to the recycle program and turn in of two recycle trucks. In addition, consolidation of the two residential routes will allow elimination of one position.

 

Annual cost savings as a result of these actions is $121,466. In addition, introduction of single stream recycling will reduce recycling program expenses. As a result, projections of future revenues and expenses in the residential collection account indicate a $2.00/month residential rate reduction to be effective October 1, 2013 is advisable.

 

Options:

1. Approve a $2.00/month rate reduction for residential customers, or

2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact:

A $2.00/month reduction for 6,900 residential customers results in a $165,600 reduction in residential collection revenue.
