ahead of item 1, Title IV, made by Director Sapanai, seconded by Director Dutkin, adopted by unanimous vote.
D. GENERAL BUSINESS
Review of Proposed Waste Management Rate Adjustment: Rob Zakoor, of Waste Management, stated that
the proposed increase of 1.22% was related to consumer price index increases such as gasoline, benefits,
labor, etc. and that additionally an overload fee was requested. Ms. Sadonna Cody, of Waste Management,
stated that those customers who were billed consecutively for carrier charges to retrieve the receptacles from
areas over 50 feet away from the street (implemented in 1993) would have to call Waste Management to
have the charge removed if they no longer required that service. Ms. Cody further stated that the carrier
charge had appeared on Waste Management bills since March of 2004 when the new streamline service was
implemented, and that the high number of local rental properties oftentimes necessitates the charge. Director
Veit stated that the customer would assume that Waste Management would remove the charge if the service
were not being rendered. The Board discussed carrier charges and tonnage statistics. Motion to approve the
rate increase and overload fee by Resolution at the next Regular meeting and to submit the unassignable
contract to legal counsel made by Director Sapanai, second by Director Tye, approved by unanimous vote.
Consideration/Review of Title IV: Mr. Dinges summarized the Manager's Report stating that he requested
that the Board direct staff to submit the
Draft Title IV
for environmental review to the County and the State.
Director Sapanai stated that the submittal process should move forward. Motion to direct Staff to submit Draft
Title IV for environmental review made by Director Dutkin, Staff was so directed by Board consensus.
Consideration of a Contractor for Coastal Commission Compliance: Mr. Dinges summarized the Manager's
Report stating that a Wetlands Biologist may be hired to oversee the project in order to comply with Coastal
Commission Requests pursuant to District staff removing exposed portions of pipe from the Lagoon. Mr.
Dinges stated that he would meet with District counsel and the Coastal Commission in November to seek
their approval of this plan. Mr. Dinges summarized the events leading up to the Coastal Commissions
mandate to remove the pipe. Director Tye suggested that if any additional work was required, that Wetlands
Research Associates should include that work as an addendum to this contract. The Board discussed the
numerous agencies involved with Lagoon Restoration and moving forward with the contract work subject to
approval by all of those agencies. The Board directed the General Manager to initiate the contract.
