WHEREAS, the Village of Granville has an exclusive contract with Big O Refuse Corporation for three-year fixed, monthly rate of $14.65 per non-senior household and $13.18 per senior household, with the Village to provide billing services for the collection, transportation, and processing of residential refuse and garbage, recyclables and yard waste; and
WHEREAS, the Village received a request from Big O Refuse in increase the refuse rate $.29 per month for each customer effective January 1, 2011; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to legislative mandate of the Ohio Revised Cod (ORC 3734.57 and 3734.573), these fees are to be paid by the waste generators and may be collected by the waste transporters, notwithstanding the existence of any contractual provisions to the contrary; and
WHEREAS, the Acting Village Manager has recommended that this increase rate of $.29 per month/$3.48 per year be accepted and passed along to each participating Village resident.
