ITEM SUMMARY:

Resolution authorizes the City Manager to sign a Memorandum of Understanding between North Texas Municipal Water District, cities of Allen, Frisco, McKinney, Plano, and Richardson regarding amended and restated Regional Composting Interlocal Agreement.

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

                     City of McKinney entered into the initial MOU with NTMWD in April 2003, was amended and restated in April 2016.  It remains in effect until April 30, 2026.

                     Amended and restated MOU is modified as follows:

o                     Plano shall solely receive Member Cities’ TCEQ rebate as a revenue source for offsetting the costs associated with operating the Program.

o                     Member Cities at “Full Participation” agree to ensure all Acceptable Material, as defined in the Amended Agreement, will be collected as part of each Member City’s municipal collection program

o                     If a Member City chooses to Participate Partially or withdraws from the Program, the Member City must provide ninety (90) days advance written notice to Plano and NTMWD.

o                     In the event a Member City withdraws from the Program or Partially Participates in the Program, that Member City may re-enter the Program by providing Plano and NTMWD at least one hundred twenty (120) days advance written notice.

o                     “Partial Participation” means that only the Member City’s residents utilize the Custer Road Facility, and only for drop-off of yard debris.

o                     For FY24, the new disposal rate for Texas Pure will be $37.95 / ton if less than five member communities participate, and $35.80 / ton if all five member communities participate.

o                     Texas Pure may increase rates based on its anticipated financial needs but will not exceed the greater of 3.5% of the prior year rate or the percentage increase in the CPI-U.

o                     Texas Pure will receive 100% of the TCEQ quarterly compost rebate instead of the five Member Cities sharing based on the percentage of yard waste delivered to the composting program.
