Tiburon council balks at request to hike trash rates

The Tiburon Town Council has put off approving an increase to trash and recycling prices for residents, with councilmembers questioning why Mill Valley Refuse Service’s rates in Tiburon are higher than the other jurisdictions it serves and once again calling for the town to put its garbage contract out to bid.

The Town Council reached an impasse with a split 2-2 vote over the 2.49-percent rate increase request from Mill Valley Refuse at its Aug. 4 meeting; the council currently has one vacancy. As a result, councilmembers voted 4-0 to continue discussion of the increase to the board’s Aug. 18 meeting.
