DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On December 2, 2014 (Item 29), the Board:
1) Adopted Resolution 227-2014 authorizing the consolidation of the American River Disposal Service (ARD) Franchise Agreement into the South Tahoe Refuse (STR) Franchise Agreement;
2) Authorized the Chair to sign the First Amendment to the STR Franchise Agreement consolidating ARD into STR’s Agreement; and
3) Adopted Resolution 228-2014 authorizing the rate increase of 4% for ARD, now referred to as Area B of the STR Franchise Agreement (Area B), to become effective January 1, 2015.

The First Amendment to the STR Franchise Agreement also authorized a series of two additional 4% increases in Area B, to become effective January 1, 2016, and January 1, 2017.

On December 15, 2015 (Item 33), the Board adopted Resolution 209-2015 authorizing the first 4% rate increase to become effective January 1, 2016.

On October 28, 2016, EMD received an email from STR requesting the second 4% increase to become effective January 1, 2017. EMD has approved STR’s written notification to each Area B ratepayer.
