A compromise was being offered <br />between the rate increase suggested by HF&H as reasonable (45%) and that being <br />requested by LAGCO (68%). The compromise was: approve a two year negotiated <br />settlement offer with a 19.9% increase in rates in the first year and a 19.9% increase <br />in the second year with CPI factored into it. <br />Council addressed several aspects of the solid waste issue.
