17.102.160 Forfeiture and Replacement.

(Amended by Ordinance No. 182671, effective May 15, 2009.)


A.  In the event that the Director finds grounds for declaring a forfeiture, according to the terms of the franchise awarded by Ordinance No. 181666 and as amended by subsequent ordinances, the Director shall make a recommendation for Council action on the matter, following procedures specified in the BPS's adopted rules.


B.  In preparing for the transfer of a forfeited franchise to another party, the Director shall solicit applications from current franchisees and from other parties who have given a written notice of their interest following a public notification. The Director shall determine the applicants’ qualifications to assume the franchise responsibilities.  The Director is authorized to then use a lottery in selecting among qualified applicants.  In addition, the Director may conduct an appraisal of the value of the forfeited franchise.  The lottery winner(s) shall then be offered the opportunity to purchase the franchise from the City within a specified time period at the appraised value.


C.  In cases where a franchisee abruptly ceases to provide collection service, and there is insufficient time to conduct an appraisal and permanently transfer a franchise, the Director may recommend that the Council appoint a temporary service provider.  If the Council makes such an appointment, it may also guarantee a minimum level of revenue to that company, in order to encourage companies who would not otherwise be willing to assume this responsibility on a short-term basis.  Such minimum level of revenue would be achieved by the City’s supplementing revenues received by the temporary service provider from its temporary customers.
