Gene Green memorandum with the amended franchise agreement
City staff and Franchisee due to the impending expiration of the existing agreement
If approved as presented, the agreement would provide additional yearly revenue of approximately $40,000
Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Staff has identified two main policy issues with the draft agreement:
Does the Council want to approve an increase in the franchise agreement from 3% to 5%?
Is the term of the draft agreement (eight-year rolling contract) acceptable?
The new franchise agreement will continue an existing relationship between the City of West Linn and West Lin Refuse and Recycling, Inc.
The agreement includes some minor modifications and the two changes noted under Policy Questions above.
Staff recommends approval of the proposed franchise agreement.
