`' Minutes of an Adjourned Regular Meeting <br />January 20, 1993 <br />Town of Los Altos Hills <br />City Council Meeting <br />Wednesday, January 20,1993,5:00 P.M. <br />Council Chambers, 26379 Fremont Road <br />1. CALL TO ORDER AND ROLL CALL <br />Mayor Pro Tem Johnson called the Adjourned Regular Meeting of the City <br />Council to order at 5:10 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Town Hall. <br />Present: Mayor Pro Tem Johnson and Councilmembers Dauber, <br />Hubbard and Siegel <br />Absent: Mayor Tryon <br />Staff: City Manager Les Jones, II, Director of Public Works Jeff <br />Peterson and City Clerk Pat Dowd <br />Press: Bill Kisliuk, Los Altos Town Crier <br />2. SOLID WASTE ISSUES <br />Johnson reported that he had spoken with the Mayor who was unable to <br />attend this meeting but who had shared the following comments: 1) she <br />would like to see comprehensive service - everything picked up at curbside <br />on different days; and 2) she was opposed to charging for use of yardwaste site <br />on Purissima. Johnson did note that the comprehensive service would be <br />very expensive. <br />Siegel believed the priority was to get the new rates into effect. The Town <br />needed to recover approximately $150,000 for the rates which had been too <br />low, landfill costs and types of service provided. Siegel further commented <br />that the Town should have a curbside plan in effect by say 1994. He did not <br />feel comfortable with charging for the yardwaste site and thereby lessening <br />the services provided at the same time as raising the rates. Siegel also stated <br />that he believed a five-year franchise was too long. Dauber noted that the cost <br />of recycling had been more expensive than the Town had thought it would <br />be. <br />
