REGULAR CALENDAR (P&O & RB)
Definition of “Adequate Commercial Recycling” for Purpose of Determining Municipal Eligibility to Receive Measure D Per Capita Allocations (Gary Wolff & Tom Padia)
Staff recommends that the Recycling Board find that Pleasanton has not yet satisfied the criteria for an adequate commercial organics recycling program, and that their quarterly Measure D payments continue to be calculated but placed in a holding account, pending a future action by the Board on this matter.
We further recommend that staff be directed to: 1) agendize a presentation by Pleasanton to the Board on how Pleasanton intends to create an adequate commercial organics recycling program as soon as feasible after Pleasanton requests such an agenda item, 2) bring a status report about Pleasanton's commercial organics program back to the Board in July 2016, and 3) bring a report on the status of all member agencies under this policy to the Board in November 2016
Pension Liability Payoff and a Related Schedule Proposal (Gary Wolff & Wendy Sommer)
Staff recommends that the P&A and P&O Committees recommend that the WMA direct staff at its November 18, 2015 meeting to follow the schedule presented in the staff report, which is intended as a decision making framework based on currently available information; and recommend that the WMA approve the proposed changes to reserves, and payment to PERS, when the mid-year budget revisions are brought before them on December 16, 2015.
A recommendation from the P&O to this effect will be understood by staff as direction by the Recycling Board with respect to preparation of its part of the combined agency budget proposals for FY16/17 and FY17/18. Should future modifications to the schedule and associated actions be needed, they will be discussed with the Board.
