Update on the Residuals Dewatering (Biosolids) Facility

Recommended Action

Staff recommends the BCC:  1. Shut down all haulers who are from out of county immediately and authorize staff to notify IRC haulers they have 30 days to find alternative arrangements for any waste they currently pick up out of county.  2. Direct staff to work with the County Attorney’s office to create an agreement similar to the one in use by Brevard County that can be tailored for use by IRC haulers.  3. Direct staff to evaluate the cost basis and pricing structure of the facility to determine fair and equitable rates to cover operating expenses and environmental concerns.
