Staff recommends approval of the amended rate schedule for solid waste collection.
The City of Leesburg operates a Solid Waste Enterprise Fund 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.
On September 25, 2006, the City Commission adopted a comprehensive rate schedule for solid waste services. At midnight, December 31, 2007, the City of Leesburg Solid Waste Department will begin providing compactor service to a wide range of commercial areas annexed over the past five years. This revision to the rate schedule adds fees for this service.
1. Adopt the attached resolution to approve the additional fees; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The proposed amendment is expected to generate additional charges for service revenue of approximately $362,684.40 for the first full twelve months.
