A RESOLUTION APPROVING AN INTER-MUNICIPAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF COHOES AND THE COHOES SCHOOL DISTRICT

Mayor McDonald, “This is a continuation of a relationship we have had the last four years, I want to bring it to the Council’s attention that we did not fill in a value for recycling.  Historically we have not charged the school district to pick up the recyclables because a year ago the City was never charged for these materials.  The fee fluctuates greatly, so we cannot put a value of what per ton we should charge for recycling.  Recently we have not been charged for paper products.  It is impossible to put a price per ton in this agreement.  I suggest to make a part of this legislation, include the ability to charge for recyclable materials, but at a rate set by the Board of Managers, to be reviewed on quarterly bases, because these are commodities, which are fluctuating greatly.

Council Member Signoracci made a MOTION to Amend Resolution No. 50, to include in Article 3, Paragraph 2:  “In consideration of terms and obligations of the agreement, the City will provide recyclable waste disposal for the School District as outlined in the Scope of Services, at a fee set by the Board of Managers on a quarterly bases”.

Council Member Ceccucci seconded the MOTION, all members voted “AYE”.

A roll call vote was taken, Council President Primeau, and Council Members, Kennedy, Turcotte, Nolin, Ceccucci, and Signoracci voted “AYE”.  Amended Resolution No. 50 for 2009 was passed.
