GSG Client Showcase: City of Oakland

City of Oakland Park Solid Waste Collection and Recycling Services Assessment Program

GSG was hired by City of Oakland Park to provide specialized services in the review and update of the City’s solid waste rates to fund residential and non-residential solid waste collection and disposal services within the City. Prior to Government Services Group’s rate study, the City relied on a volume-based rate system for commercial accounts and there was no provision for residential accounts. GSG developed a legally defensible methodology that fairly apportioned the costs of residential and non-residential solid waste services among affected property owners. Government Services Group assisted the City in implementing the new rates.
