Board of Commissioners <br />Meeting Minutes - Final July 17, 2019 <br />for mandatory County -wide garbage pickup had expired. Administrator Brown <br />explained the provisions in the contract and suggested that for planning purposes, a <br />proposed rate of $8.50 per month for a total of $51.00 would be advisable. <br />Commissioner O'Bryan amended his motion and Chairman Solari amended his <br />second, to add $51.00 to the SWDD Assessment, which would cover six months of <br />mandatory garbage pickup beginning April 1, 2020 for all residents in the <br />unincorporated area of the County. <br />Chairman Solari opened the public hearing. <br />Property Appraiser Wesley S. Davis stated he would be willing to work with the <br />Board on including a notification in the TRIM notices. <br />There being no further speakers, the Chairman Solari closed the Public Hearing. <br />County Attorney Dylan Reingold referred to County Administrator Brown for <br />clarification in regards to the amended rates. Administrator Brown replied that the <br />properties within the cities and outside the Urban Service Area would continue with <br />the current proposed rate of $120.90 per Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU). He <br />continued that the residents in the unincorporated areas and within the Urban <br />Service Area, the rate would be $51.00 higher, for a total of $171.90 per ERU. <br />Property Appraiser Wesley S. Davis requested a simplification of the proposed <br />SWDD assessment. He suggested an across the board rate of $171.90 for all <br />residents in the unincorporated areas of the County. He explained that using one <br />rate during the budget workshop and hearings would ensure timely mailing of the <br />TRIM notices as well as setting a rate ceiling for all affected residents. Should the <br />Board decide on mandatory County -wide trash pickup, the rates could then be <br />lowered to reflect final negotiated rates. <br />Commissioner O'Bryan summarized the proposed rate, amended his motion and <br />Chairman Solari amended his second. <br />A motion was made by Commissioner O'Bryan, seconded by Chairman Solari, to <br />approve a proposed charge of $120.90 per Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU) for <br />residents within the cities and $171.90 per ERU for residents in the unincorporated <br />area of the County and within the urban service area for mandatory garbage service <br />for six months beginning April 1, 2020. The motion carried by the following vote: <br />Aye: 5 - Chairman Solari, Vice Chairman Adams, Commissioner Flescher, Commissioner <br />O'Bryan, and Commissioner Zorc <br />411-217 SANITARY LANDFILL <br />411-255 RECYCLING <br />Indian River County Florida <br />Page 2 <br />
