Sanitation fee increase goes into effect July 1
The city of Claremont will put into effect a 1 (one) percent increase in santiation fees for Claremont residents on Tuesday, July 1.
According to the latest city manager’s report, based on current 2014-15 budget projections for the Sanitation Fund, an increase of 1 percent is necessary to sustain operations of the city’s sanitation system. This increase is consistent with the March Consumer Price Index increase for the Los Angeles area. The fee increase amounts to approximately 20 to 45 cents month for a typical single-family customer.
In addition to the 1 percent increase, city council directed staff to incorporate fee changes recommended by the Sanitation Operations Ad Hoc Committee, including raising rates for elective services such as off-street service, bin off-street service and dumpster rentals. The city council approved the increase on the fees at the May 13 council meeting following a public hearing.
