[ARCHIVED] Public Hearing Regarding the Mill Valley Refuse Rate Increase Application


The Corte Madera Town Council will discuss and consider the adoption of a Resolution finding no objection to a rate increase request for the delivery of solid waste collection and recycling services from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019 by Mill Valley Refuse Service, Inc. At the request of the Town, a third-party consultant, R3 Consulting Group, Inc., conducted a formal review and evaluation of MVRS’s rate increase application. R3 concluded that the basis for MVRS’s request was justified and they adjusted MVRS’s requested increase of 14.83% down to 13.77% after taking into account the non-allowable costs (i.e. pensions) included in Corte Madera’s franchise agreement, as well as other recommended adjustments.
