R7N Commission Memorandum No. 652-99

A Resolution Approving and Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to Execute an Agreement with the Four Existing Non-Exclusive Franchise Waste Contractors: Browning-Ferris Industries; Davis Sanitation, Inc.; Imperial Sanitation Service; and Waste Management of Dade County, to Provide Additional Sanitation Services to City-Owned Facilities, at No Cost to the City, in Consideration of the City=s Agreement to Limit the Number of Solid Waste Contractor Franchisees to Four (4), for the Duration of Said Agreement.

(Sanitation Department)

ACTION: Resolution No. 99-23305 adopted. Motion made by Commissioner Smith; seconded by Commissioner Gottlieb; voice vote: 6-0; absent: Commissioner Dermer.

Commissioner Smith questioned the process of monitoring the contracts and the haulers to ensure that the savings accrued by the City are not passed on to the consumer. Assistant City Manager Matthew Schwartz stated that a biannual report will be provided to the Commission which will include a sample of existing customers to determine if there were any raises. Complaints will also be monitored and reported back to the Commission. Increases in dumping fees and hauling costs will also be monitored.

Commissioner Smith questioned the staffing levels of the Sanitation Department to ensure an enhanced level of service.

Commissioner Gottlieb questioned the funding deficits and the increases in fees over the past 2-3 years for the Sanitation Department and suggested a review by the Budget Advisory Committee.

Commissioner Cruz stated that he agreed with Commissioner Gottllieb and that he would like to see a defined role for the Sanitation Department and that current deficits either remain stagnant or decrease. Commissioner Cruz requested that the information be presented to the Budget Advisory Committee and then to the Finance Committee.

Vice-Mayor Shapiro stated that the discussion raised another important question and that is the organization of the Sanitation Department which is considered to be an Enterprise Fund Department. The department is comprised of two elements (private garbage haulers and the street cleaning function) and the deficit is being created by the street cleaning function which should be separated from the Sanitation/Enterprise Fund Department. The street cleaning function should be a line item in the General Fund budget and profits from the Sanitation Department should go into the General Fund and requested that Administration review the organization of the department.

Commissioner Gottlieb requested a report on the number of complaints Onyx has received over the past several months. Matthew Schwartz to handle.
