SOLID WASTE DISPOSAL FRANCHISE

March 3, 2022, the Board of County Commissioners will be asked to award the Solid Waste Disposal to one of three bidders and direct staff to negotiate a franchise agreement. Community Development Director Andrew Haskin will present this item during a time certain, 9:45 AM, agenda item.

Lyon County has been working on this project since late summer 2021. The Board of Commissioners held a workshop in 2021 to determine what the community desired in the franchise agreement as well as a number of stakeholder meetings conducted with the Citizen Advisory Boards. The Board addressed the contents of the Request for Proposal at two different public hearings.

Lyon County staff has reviewed the bids and scored the bids according to how each bidder addressed the RFP. The staff has provided the Board with a comparison by the bidder as to content and pricing as well as copies of each bid.

The three bids came from C & S Waste DisposalOlcese Waste Services, and Waste Management
