· Tonnage for the 3rd week of June was 149.15 tons and for the 3rd week of July 146.82. The average is 147.985 or 148 tons per week.
· 148 tons/wk x 4.33 wks/month= 640.84 or 641 tons/month. 641 tons x $22.00/ton=$14,102/month. $14,102/6,540 auto cans= an increase of approximately $2.15 per can per month for Price City Customers.
The amounts will be finalized in the next few weeks and will include size of storage containers etc. The increase will also affect businesses with larger containers and those companies that demolish buildings or homes. The more debris, the higher the cost will be for the customer as they will now have to take their waste directly to ECDC to be weighed. The increase is set to take place on October 1, 2007. The Mayor and City Council thanked Mr. Williams for the update.

18. EXPENDITURE AND RELEASE REPORT FOR APPROVED CAPITAL PROJECTS, SERVICE PROJECTS AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENTS-Authorization for Partial Payment of $12,241.60 for the Purchase and Installation of the Backup Electrical Generator at the Water Treatment Plant to Ballard Electric. Partial Payment #3 in the Amount of $33,575.00 for Castle Ridge Subdivision Perkins Development Agreement.
Castle Ridge Subdivision-A 10% retainage will be held for one year plus $1,500 for a street light. All work finished to date is satisfactory meeting the City’s minimum standards. It needs to be noted that the existing street is suffering from settlement that appears to be coming from the sewer line trench. The water and sewer mains were already in place prior to their work. While work was done to install the sewer laterals, water was found traveling along the sewer pipeline alignment. The City water & sewer department crews checked on this and reported that it was not coming from the sewer main; but appeared to be ground water. The water may be saturating the sewer trench and slowly causing it to settle. The road’s travel surface is not entirely smooth. Future street maintenance will have to address this. City crews will continue to monitor this.
