The new <br />contract charge will be reduced from the current amount of $410,791 to $339,919. <br /> <br /> Also, the Commission approved a residential solid waste adjustment which will <br />increase the residential rate from $14.94 to $16.35 per month for regular curbside <br />pickup for garbage, recycle and yard waste. The collection charge for additional trash <br />and vegetative waste will be increased from $7.44 per cubic yard to $7.83 per cubic <br />yard. The rate changes reflect the required annual cost of living increase. The City’s <br />Solid Waste contractor is Republic Services, Inc. The current contract expires at the <br />end of December, 2008 and it is anticipated that a new contract in January, 2009 will <br />reflect an additional increase in the rates due to gas and other increases. . <br /> <br />The City Commission also set the proposed tentative property tax millage rate at <br />4.8963, which will be advertised as a tax decrease. The public hearing on the FY09 <br />budget is scheduled for September 8, 2008, with final adoption scheduled for <br />September 22, 2008. <br /> <br />The next regular meeting of the Casselberry City Commission is scheduled for <br />Monday, August 11, 2008 at 7 p.m. in the Commission Chambers located on the first <br />floor of City Hall at 95 Triplet Lake Drive, Casselberry, FL 32702. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />### <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />For more information, news and events in the City of Casselberry, log onto www.casselberry.org <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
