Also on Monday’s City Council meeting agenda is a rate adjustment proposal for 2019 for Marin Sanitary Service to provide refuse, recycling, and composting for ratepayers in San Rafael. The proposed rate adjustment would increase rates by 9.39% over 2018 levels for all ratepayers. This increase includes adjustments based on an agreed-upon rate setting methodology that the City has with Marin Sanitary Service and is based upon an independent third-party review of expenses and revenues. Additionally, this agenda item includes a proposed third amendment to the City’s Franchise Agreement with Marin Sanitary Service to address recycling costs and revenues going forward, to streamline and simplify the overall rate setting process, and to resolve other contractual issues.
