Garbage Rate Increase for Some Southern Marin Neighborhoods

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 8/25/2015


The Board will hear a request to conduct a hearing to consider Mill Valley Refuse Service’s requested 3.89 percent rate increase for the Southern Marin franchise areas. About 800 customers in the unincorporated areas near Mill Valley and Tiburon known as Shoreline and Gibson, Paradise Cay, Paradise and Mar East would be subject to the rate increase. Mill Valley Refuse demonstrated, and a subsequent independent audit confirmed, that a 20.56 percent rate increase was appropriate, but the company realizes that a rise of that magnitude is unpalatable for customers. A phasing-in method is recommended, resulting in a 3.89 increase at this time. 


The Board conducted the public hearing and approved the rate increase.
