AGENDA ITEM:
Consider Action to Approve Ordinance No. 1654 Providing for Refuse Rates; Providing for a Repealing Clause; Providing for a Severability Clause; and, Providing an Effective Date for Community Waste Disposal for an Annual Market Adjustment per the Current Service Contract.
DESCRIPTION:
Community Waste Disposal (CWD) has requested a market adjustment in accordance with the Residential Refuse and Recycling service contract. The market adjustment will become effective on February 1, 2022, for Commercial customers only. The Town's current service contract with CWD allows for commercial rates to have an annual adjustment every year effective February 1 for an increase in the CPI, landfill increases, and a fuel cost adjustment. The 2022 Little Elm adjustment worksheet outlines the detail behind these various service factors:
  • CPI increase of 5.40%
  • Fuel decrease of 127.55%
  • Landfill increase of 5.00%
CWD and the Town of Little Elm have all rates frozen for residential and multi-family rates for any and all services provided by CWD over the remaining current contract expiring January 31, 2025. CWD may petition the Town for a disposal rate increase effective October 1, 2022 and each 12 months thereafter for residential and multi-families.  Ordinance No. 1654 provides for the refuse rates effective date February 1, 2022 for Commercial customers.
BUDGET IMPACT:
There is no momentary impact to the Town for this rate adjustment to commercial customers. CWD bills commercial customers directly.
RECOMMENDED ACTION:
Staff recommends approval.
