AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           September 25, 2006

 

From:                          Jerry Boop, Deputy Finance Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution amending the rate schedule for Solid Waste Collection and related services

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends adopting the attached resolution approving the rate changes for single family solid waste collection.

 

Analysis:

The City of Leesburg operates a Solid Waste Enterprise which provides residential and commercial services to the Citizens of Leesburg.  The purpose of an enterprise fund is to provide these services allowing for enough profit through charges for services to facilitate expansion and capital reinvestment.  A review of the last three Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports, Fiscal Years 2003-2005, reflects a combined operational loss of $50,307.  Further analysis reflects that the operational loss is attributable to increased operational costs in running residential services.  Based on this analysis, the City recommends that its rates for residential services be increased.  This is the first proposed rate change since May 1, 2003 at which time rates were decreased.
