Title

A Resolution of the City of Coral Gables, Florida, relating to the collection and disposal of solid waste and recyclable materials in the City of Coral Gables, Florida; reimposing Solid Waste Service Assessments against assessed property located within the City of Coral Gables, Florida, for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2019; approving the rate of assessment; approving the Solid Waste Assessment Roll; and providing for an effective date.

Body

The Amended and Restated Initial Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2016-149) was adopted on June 14, 2016, and the Amended and Restated Final Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2016-207) was adopted on September 13, 2016.  The Master Service Assessment Ordinance (No. 2015-09) was adopted on May 26, 2015.

 

On June 11, 2019, the City adopted the Preliminary Assessment Resolution (Resolution No. 2019-193), which initiated the process for the annual imposition of the Solid Waste Service Assessments and established the following rates for solid waste collection and disposal services for the Fiscal Year beginning October 1, 2019, which were increased from the prior year:

Early Payment Single Family - From $756 to $762

Early Payment Auxiliary Units - From $378 to $381

Regular Payment Single Family - From $886 to $894

Regular Payment Auxiliary Units - From $443 to $447

 

Residential property owners were allowed to prepay the discounted annual rate by August 15, 2019, and be removed from the assessment roll. All required notices have been provided to affected property owners in accordance with the Master Service Assessment Ordinance and the Preliminary Assessment Resolution.

 

Pursuant to the Master Service Assessment Ordinance, the final step for the imposition of the solid waste assessments is the adoption of an Annual Assessment Resolution.  The Annual Assessment Resolution for Solid Waste confirms the Solid Waste Cost, the method of apportionment, and the above rate of assessments proposed in the Preliminary Assessment Resolution. It also adopts the final Solid Waste Assessment Roll and directs that the roll be certified to the Tax Collector for collection no later than September 15.
