Staff recommends approval of Resolution 2022-115
Waste Management is increasing their rates as of June 1st and again on October 1st. The June 1st increase is within our current rate of $162 so no action is needed.
We will, however, need to increase our rate to cover the October increase and to anticipate future rate increases so we do not have to advertise an increase every year.
We are suggesting that the rate be increased to $185. Lake County is currently $188, and they are also raising their rates.
In the past, Waste Management has increased their rates from a low of .34% to a high of 2.3%. Calculating an average increase of 1.2% over the next 6 years, we should be able to cover any increases.
