Approval of the Draft Minutes of May 22, 2019 (Wendy Sommer)
Public Hearing and Annual Adoption of Fee Collection Report for Household Hazardous Waste Fee (Pat Cabrera)
Staff recommends that the WMA Board hold a public hearing on the Fee Collection Report and approve by resolution, the Fee Collection Report for FY 2019-20, which includes adjusting the annual fee downward from $7.40 per unit in FY 2018-19 to $6.64 per unit for FY 2019-20.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Fee Change and Ordinance Amendment (Pat Cabrera)
Staff recommends that the WMA Board:
1. Introduce and waive the first reading of the attached ordinance to be considered for adoption following a public hearing and protest process in accordance with Proposition 218. The ordinance resets the annual HHW Collection and Disposal fee to $6.64 per year per residential unit through June 30, 2024. The ordinance requires that a financial analysis be conducted by March 31, 2024 to determine what the fee should be for the following five fiscal years and to conduct similar analysis in five year intervals to determine what the fee should be at that time. While the fee can be lowered or raised during those periods, it will be capped at $9.55 per year per residential unit per the original ordinance. The amended ordinance removes the previous sunset provision; however, the Board may repeal this fee at any time.
2. Approve the attached resolution regarding the protest proceedings required under Proposition 218.
3. Direct staff to prepare amendments to the HHW program Memoranda of Understandings (MOUs) with the County of Alameda and the City of Fremont reflecting the new ordinance to be considered following adoption of the ordinance.
