Agenda for 10/6/22
Review and Possible Action Concerning Review of Recology 2023 Solid Waste Rate Increase.
In accordance with the existing franchise agreement, Recology provided financial information to the District for the requested annual rate increase for calendar year 2023, resulting in a 5.61% rate increase. The monthly rate for 32 gallon waste container would increase from currently $36.22 to $38.25.
The District’s accountants, RVE, Accounting & Advisory was asked to apply procedures to identify any material mistakes associated with documents and calculations used by Recology to determine the 2023 Rate year adjustment factor.
For rate year 2023, our contract with Recology stipulates the utilization of an index-based calculation as compared to a cost-based calculation.
Index-based adjustment years provide good faith presentations of Recology’s expenses and applies various CPI increases to determine the rate for the calendar year.
