Title
CONSIDERATION OF RESOLUTION NO. 20-029 AMENDING THE CLASSIFICATION PLAN, RESOLUTION NO. 77-111, BY ADOPTING NEW JOB CLASSIFICATION SPECIFICATIONS FOR SANITATION OFFICER (CITY COUNCIL)

Body
I. SUMMARY

Pursuant to California Public Resources Code Section 40059(a) (I), the City Council of the City of Carson has determined that the public health, safety, and welfare require that an exclusive franchise be awarded to a qualified solid waste enterprise for solid waste handling in residential, commercial, and industrial areas in the City.
On March 15, 2018, the City entered into a franchise agreement with Waste Resources Technologies, Inc. ("WR") to be the City's solid waste hauler and operate the required recycling programs in Carson. Recent legislation, such as Assembly Bill 341 ("AB 341"), as implemented by Cal Recycle, place a significant responsibility on counties and cities, even more than other governmental entities, for meeting these requirements, relying on extremely prescriptive requirements and excessive inspection and monitory reporting to mandate that counties and cities impose steep penalties on residents and businesses if they do not comply with the recycling statutes. This approach requires cities to become inspectors of the solid waste and recycling streams in their communities.
Included in the Annual Inspection Fees of the WR agreement were three positions. Staff is presenting the first of two job specs to Council for approval, to adopt a new job classification for the Sanitation Officer role to address the monitoring and enforce anti-dumping and anti-scavenging regulations.
