Glendale City Council Meeting Preview: Private waste hauler fees

Private waste hauler fees

The City Council on Tuesday will consider increasing the city fee charged to private waste haulers who collect trash from commercial businesses.

As allowed under state law, the city charges a 15% fee on the company's revenue from trash collection in the city to support mandated waste diversion efforts. Public Works officials propose to raise the fee to 20% starting in January to meet rising waste diversion costs.


The council will likely approve the request.

Sponsorship request

The City Council is expected to approve a request from the Glendale Kiwanis Club to co-sponsor the organization's annual fundraising event, Kiwanis Incredible Duck Splash, to be held on Oct. 23 at Verdugo Park.

If sponsorship is approved, Kiwanis would receive a 50% discount on fees related to the rental and use of the city park facility, or about $2,060.


The City Council is expected to approve the request, as the city has previously acted as a co-sponsor.

Brand Boulevard maintenance district

The City Council will consider levying an annual special assessment fee on property owners in the Brand Boulevard Maintenance District.

This year's assessment is proposed at the current rate of $10.25 per square foot of property, which is expected to generate about $94,000 each year, the majority of which is earmarked for holiday decorations.


The City Council will likely approve the assessment, which has been levied for many years.
