This week, the city of Beverly Hills will begin notifying residents and commercial businesses about its proposed solid waste rate adjustments and upcoming town hall meetings scheduled in the coming months.
If approved at a public hearing scheduled for Oct. 27, the proposed rate adjustments will be effective starting July 1, 2021, with future adjustments occurring annually for the next five years. The proposed rates for solid waste services will ensure adequate revenues are available to deliver services to the community.
As the cost to provide solid waste services continues to increase for the city, customer rates are reviewed regularly to ensure that customers pay the correct charges for the type of service they receive. This is the first time the city has proposed a rate adjustment since 2011.
Beginning in 2021, a single-family residential, 6,620-square-foot lot, for example, will see a bimonthly increase of $6.75, while multi-family residential housing will see an increase of $5.38 per unit. In addition to the proposed rate adjustments, there will also be changes to commercial and residential services.
“While we understand the hardships many are facing during COVID-19, we have worked to ensure this rate increase is minimal to continue providing a high-quality service to the community,” Public Works Director Shana Epstein said.
There will be two virtual town hall meetings scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 1, and Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 6 p.m.
