AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           January 28, 2008

 

From:                          Raymond S. Sharp, Director, Environmental Services

 

Subject:                      Ordinance amending Section 22-227 and 22-229 of the Code of Ordinances pertaining to pollution abatement charges and establishing a new rate schedule for pollution abatement charges.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the ordinance establishing a rates schedule for pollution abatement.

 

Analysis:

The result of the recent utility rate study was presented to City of Leesburg Commission in a workshop on January 22, 2008.  This rate ordinance reflects the data presented during that workshop.

 

 

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Ordinance as presented, or,

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact

As presented and discussed during the January 22, 2008 workshop, the intent of this rate redesign is that the proposed rate structure will be revenue neutral.  Therefore, staff anticipates the proposed rate structure will have no significant effect on revenue.
