VIDEO. From the Montara Water and Sanitary District (MWSD) Directors’ meeting on Thursday, December 15th, 2022 at 7:30pm by Zoom.
From the Agenda
“Proposition 218 Public Hearing for a Review and Possible Action Concerning Adoption of a Revised Master Fee Schedule to amend Solid Waste Disposal Fees.
The Board adopted a new prop 218 limit for solid waste removal fees at the December 1 hearing. For the new rates to be set at the newly established maximum prop 218 limit, the Master Fee Schedule needs to be amended.
The franchise agreement with Recology of the Coast requires the District to annually assess the solid waste disposal rates by January 1 in accordance with an agreed upon formula. Pursuant to the franchise agreement, Recology of the Coast provided calculations required for the index-based rate increase effective January 1, 2023 resulting in a 5.61% rate increase. The monthly rate for 32 gallon waste container increases from currently $36.22 to $38.25.”
