- 2008: $60 for availability fees and $630.50 for disposal fees.
- 2009: $60 for availability fees and $630.50 for disposal fees.
The availability fees accounted for a significant portion of the total fees, with $630.50 of the $694.50 in 2007 being attributed to these fees. The board emphasized the importance of clarifying the availability fees for the sake of transparency.
Board’s Authority and Fee Schedule:
A question arose regarding a specific bill amounting to $60. The board inquired whether this bill was incurred by a contractor or other party. Miss Miller confirmed that the bill was in line with the fee schedule provided to all contractors, which included a $15 per quarter availability fee. The fee schedule had been in place since the mid-90s and applied uniformly to all contractors. The board also noted that they had the authority to adjust the fee schedule on an annual basis during the budget process.
During the meeting, a gentleman approached the board with a request relating to a 2006 delinquent bill. The outstanding bill amounted to $92.97, and the gentleman had already paid $50 towards it. He requested the board’s consideration to release the remaining $42.97. Miss Miller explained that, according to statute, the board did not have the authority to release or compromise any part of a bill without potentially facing personal liability. However, she assured the gentleman that she would bring his request to the board for discussion.
