RESOLUTION OF INTENTION 20-25 A RESOLUTION TO INCREASE THE ANNUAL FEE FOR SERVICE AND PROVIDE AN ANNUAL INFLATIONARY ADJUSTMENT FOR THE LAKE COUNTY SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT DISTRICT Whereas, 75-10-112, MCA, allows Lake County to plan, develop and implement a solid waste management system, and Whereas, 7-13-4108, MCA, grants Lake County the authority to charge for solid waste services, and, Whereas, the Board of Directors for the Lake County Solid Waste District has determined the current annual fee of $160.00 is inadequate to maintain district services, and Whereas, operational expenses are increasing due to increasing waste volumes, personnel costs, state fees, regulatory compliance costs and the addition of future services, and Whereas, there is a need to prevent reductions in service the Lake County Solid Waste Board of Directors recommend increasing the annual fee for service $20.00, from $160.00 to $180.00 per family residential unit. It is also their recommendation to increase this fee annually through the application of a factor derived from a rolling 3 year average of the annual CPI, as published by the United States Bureau of Labor. Whereas, the Lake County Landfill is anticipated to close in approximately 6 years, and following the Montana Department of Environmental Quality's approval of the final closure, fees will be recalculated to provide the appropriate Solid Waste Annual Fee. Now therefore be it resolved that the Board of Lake County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Tuesday October 27, 2020 at 1:30 pm, in the Commissioners Chambers of the Lake County Courthouse, for the purpose of taking public comment on the intention of Lake County Solid Waste Management District Fee increasing from the current $160.00 to $180.00 per family residential unit with an annual CPI increase derived from a rolling 3 year average based on the United States Bureau of Labor.
