Staff recommends approval of the agreement with C & C Peat Co., Inc.
C & C Peat will be accepting wastewater residuals from the City to blend with other items for the creation of a composting mix for the nursery industry. Current residuals management by City staff has resulted in an increase in overtime. Upon approval of this agreement, the City will see an immediate reduction in overtime hours. This agreement will also allow for an increased lifespan of current sludge application areas due to decreased use. The City will also benefit from reduced liability from the standpoint of regulatory requirements.
1. Approve the agreement with C & C Peat Co., Inc., or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
C & C Peat Co., Inc. will receive payment from the City of $.015 per gallon of residuals accepted. The total annualized expense is not to exceed $91,000.00. Staff anticipates the current fiscal year costs will be much lower, since the co-composting operation is in the startup phases and will take some months to become established.
