BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GADSDEN, ALABAMA, as follows:

Section 106-86 of the City of Gadsden Code of Ordinances is amended to read as follows:

Sec. 106-86. Residential collection fee.

(a) Monthly fee. The fee for weekly residential garbage collection shall be $20.00 per month for each residence unit, which may be billed quarterly.

(b) Fee for second container. If a second container is necessary, the fee shall be doubled.

(c) Responsibility for payment. The owner of the property shall be liable for payment if the fee is not paid by the occupant of the property.

(d) Due date for payment; delinquency. Payment shall be due upon receipt and shall be delinquent if not paid in 30 days. There shall be a penalty of $5.00 per can per quarter for any payment after the delinquent date. It shall be unlawful to fail to pay a bill that is delinquent. A citation for failure to pay may be issued in substantially the form provided in section 82-31. Violations shall be punished by a fine of not less than $50.00, nor more than $200.00. If the violation is a continuing one, each day’s violation shall constitute a separate offense and shall be punished accordingly.

(e) Vacant residences. The fee shall be billed to every non-exempt residential unit, even if vacant, unless water service has been disconnected. Payment shall be due if a can is placed at the household for one day in the month. The household may request that the department of public works remove the can if it is to be vacated. If the household is vacant more than three months, the can shall be removed and no payment shall be due until a request is made to place a can there to obtain collection service from the city.

(f) Use of fees. The funds may be used to pay landfill tipping fees; to close the present municipal landfill; to acquire, design and construct any solid waste transfer station; to assist in the acquisition, design and construction of a new sanitary landfill in compliance with federal environmental regulations; to purchase equipment and supplies used in the collection of garbage; and for other uses approved by the city council.

So long as sufficient funds exist from voluntary contributions as certified by the City’s Finance Director, a request made by the Superintendent of Gadsden City Schools for school safety or security is authorized to be approved by the mayor. Any other requests made by the Superintendent must first be approved by the City Council upon recommendation by the mayor and certification of sufficient funds by the Finance Director. Each bill-payer shall have the right to opt out of the non-mandatory $1.00 contribution upon payment remittance of each quarterly bill.

Sec. 106-86.1. Account Activation fee.

(a) New customers, current customers with a late payment history, when there is a change in the person named on the account, and previous customers who have not had garbage collection services in their name in the prior six months must pay an activation fee equal to the quarterly fee set out in section 106-86.

(b) If a current customer fails to pay the residential collection fee for two consecutive quarters or three quarters in any 24-month period, then the customer must pay the fee set out in subsection (a) before service will be continued.

(c) If a consumer fails to pay two quarterly bills prior to the delinquent date of the second quarterly bill, their service will be discontinued until they re-pay the activation fee, plus a $10.00 penalty for delinquency.

(d) If a garbage can has been removed from a customer as a result of delinquency in payment of the collection fee, the customer must pay a fee of $25.00 for the return of the garbage can to the same or different location for the same customer. This fee is in addition to any other payment that may be due before service resumes for the customer.
