A Resolution Authorizing the County Administrator to Execute an Agreement with the Town of Warrenton Waiving Municipal Tipping Fees at the County Sanitary Landfill in Exchange for Equalized Rates for County Citizens at the Town’s Recreational Facilities


Topic Description:

The County of Fauquier has previously waived the tipping fees for the Town of Warrenton’s municipal solid waste.  The County’s decision to waive the tipping fees was contingent upon receipt of sufficient commercial and industrial debris revenue to offset the waived tipping fees.  The County is closing its commercial and industrial debris landfill site and is considering re-imposing the tipping fees for the Town’s municipal solid waste.  The Town of Warrenton has requested that the County not re-impose the tipping fees and offers as an incentive an agreement not to charge County residents fees higher than those imposed by the Town on its own residents at Town recreational facilities.  The Town/County Liaison Committee has unanimously recommended that the Board authorize the execution of an agreement waiving the County’s solid waste tipping fees for the Town’s municipal solid waste in exchange for the Town charging County residents the same user fees as imposed upon Town residents at Town recreational facilities.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Consider adoption of the attached resolution.


Financial Impacts Analysis:

There is no fiscal impact for FY 2007 as the County’s budget does not contemplate re-imposing the tipping fee for the current fiscal year.  Annual future revenue estimated to be lost is $223,560.
