CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: July 26, 2005
Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute
an agreement with Garaventa Enterprises, dba Brentwood Disposal for the
transfer of solid waste services in the Central Annexation area for the Rose
Garden and Sterling Preserve II subdivisions.
Prepared by: Jon Carlson, Solid Waste Manager
Submitted by: Paul Zolfarelli, Director of Public Works
Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement
with Garaventa Enterprises, dba Brentwood Disposal for the transfer of solid
waste services in the Central Annexation area for the Rose Garden and
Sterling Preserve II subdivisions.
There is no previous Council action.
In 1994, the City of Brentwood took over solid waste services from the
privately franchised hauler, Brentwood Disposal, owned by Garaventa
Enterprises. The City has been providing the solid waste services within the
City’s incorporated boundaries since that time. As unincorporated areas
serviced by Brentwood Disposal have been annexed into the City, Garaventa
Enterprises has exercised its option under section 49520 of the State Public
Resources Code and continued service of residents for up to five years
before allowing the City of Brentwood to take over the collection.
Several large annexations (Northwest and O’Hara Avenue/Neroly Road) occurred
in 1999. Proper notification and timetables were set at that time for these
annexations. Five years later, in March 2004 solid waste services in those
areas transferred over to the City from Brentwood Disposal as planned.
The Central Annexation occurred in 2001 and it was set to transfer to the
City in the same manner in March 2006. However, upon mutual agreement of the
City of Brentwood and Brentwood Disposal, two new subdivisions, Rose Garden
and Sterling Preserve II, are being transferred before March 2006 to
minimize the impact on all of the new residents who would otherwise have to
start up services with the Brentwood Disposal, only to change services to
the City in less than a year. This early transfer, which included just over
40 residential customers, occurred in June of 2005.
The existing active customers of Brentwood Disposal within the Central
Annexation area will be transferred to the City solid waste services in
March 2006, as originally planned.
Future annexations include the Yamanaka, the Rod & Gun Club and the Christ
properties. The official transfer date is August 2007. At this time, there
are no plans to alter this transfer date.
Staff is still awaiting final determinations from LAFCO (Local Agency
Formation Commission) on the Vineyards at Marsh Creek and the School
District’s annexations. Once we receive documentation from LAFCO, Brentwood
Disposal will be notified and another five-year term will be established for
conclusion of their services in these areas to any existing customers. The
transfer of these services will be handled in the same manner as previous
transfers. Local Agency Formation Commission stated we should have these
determinations in the near future.
The fiscal impact of the early transfer of the two subdivisions, which would
have occurred in March 2006, includes less than $500 direct labor costs to
deliver the carts, plus the additional purchase of three carts per home
(approximately $120/home) totaling about $5,000 in carts for a combined
total of approximately $5,500 in expenses.
The anticipated revenues for monthly service by the 40 plus customers will,
of course offset this expense.
