BACKGROUND & DISCUSSION
Universal has requested a business license to provide commercial and industrial roll-off and recycling services. Universal has agreed to meet the requirements of the agreement, which include providing source reduction and recycling reports, obtaining a business license, submitting franchise and AB 939 fees, and submitting required insurance documentation. The addition of Universal would authorize a total of 13 firms to conduct commercial refuse service in the City. The agreement also informs all commercial haulers that on December 20, 2000, the City issued a Notice of Non-Extension and that there might be no renewal of such annual agreements beyond December 21, 2005.
The City receives a five percent franchise fee and a five percent AB 939 fee on gross receipts. Annually, the City received approximately $60,000 in franchise fees and AB 939 fees from the various commercial haulers.
