(November 15, 2016) Report from the General Manager, Solid Waste Management Services and the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer

Summary

This report outlines the recommended 2017 Solid Waste Rates and Fees arising from the concurrent adoption of the 2017 Solid Waste Management Services (SMWS) Recommended Operating and Capital Budgets.

 

Recommended rate and fee increases will vary based on customer group. Table 1 highlights the recommended key Solid Waste Rates and Fees beginning January 1, 2017.

 

Table 1 – 2017 Recommended Rate and Fee Increases

 

Customer Group

Increase

Single Family Residential, small bin

$12.73

Single Family Residential, medium bin

$15.45

Single Family Residential, large bin

$20.98

Single Family Residential, extra-large bin

$24.34

Multi-residential base fee per unit

$2.09

Multi-residential excess fee per yd³

$0.15

Yellow Tag Fee

$1.61

 

The proposed blended 3.9 percent increase on SWMS Rates and Fees is anticipated to generate $11.259 million in additional revenue in 2017. This recommended increase is required to fund the necessary reserve contributions that would ensure sufficient funds to pay off the City's 10-year Debt Service issue Plan for SWMS, implement the Long-Term Waste Management Strategy ("Waste Strategy"), offset rapidly escalating vehicle maintenance costs and cover lost revenue. The recommended budget contains $8.433 million in efficiencies and new revenue enhancements representing 7.6 percent of SWMS variable expenses.

 

The 2017 Recommended Operating Budget is $378.3 million, with a $25.3 million reserve contribution, and the 2017 Recommended Capital Budget is $105.3 million – comprised of $103 million in new 2017 funding, as well as $1.7 million in funding carried forward from 2016 into 2017. These combined budgets reflect the cost to maintain the City Council approved service levels for SWMS.

 

A key priority for the SWMS Division for 2017 is the implementation of the Waste Strategy, which includes making advancements in waste reduction and further diversion opportunities as well as ensuring the long term fiscal sustainability of the Division. In keeping with Council Strategic Action #7 (Develop a Long-term Solid Waste Management Strategy), this report also discusses taking continued steps toward rate sustainability through consideration of further reductions to the Single Family Residential Solid Waste Rebate in 2017 as part of the City's Tax Supported Budget to be released later this year. Changes to the Solid Waste Rebate has no impact on the SWMS 2017 Rates and Fees increase or Budgets.
