No surprise: Ada swimming pool receipts lower than last year

It’s no surprise to anyone that Ada pool receipts this summer were lower than previous years. That loss is a result of many factors including the weather.

In Tuesday’s Ada council packet a year-end pool report compares income and expenses for the past five seasons. Three of this year’s bottom lines show:

• $37,400 pool revenue before income tax ($35,933 in 2014)
• $112,880 income tax receipts ($163,203 in 2014)
• $150,288 total revenue after income tax  ($199,136 in 2014)

On the plus side expenses were $97,276 this year ($128,603 in 2014).

On council agenda: First reading of legislation that changes waste-recycling contractor

Ada council will consider the first reading of legislation authorizing Republic Services as the solid waste and recycling contractor for the village. The action is on the Tuesday, Sept. 15 council agenda.

On Sept. 1 council voted to accept Republic Services as the community’s new waste hauler, because its sealed bid was lower than Waste Management’s. 

The contract is for three years, beginning Dec. 1, with an option to renew for another three years.

Republic Services awarded Ada residential trash bid; Waste Management out after 12 years in Ada

By Amy Eddings

After 12 years of service, Waste Management will no longer be collecting Ada’s residential trash. 

The Village Council voted to accept Republic Services as the community’s new waste hauler, because its sealed bid was lower than Waste Management’s.  The contract is for three years, beginning Dec. 1, with an option to renew for another three years.

The savings?  Thirty-seven cents per customer per year.  Republic’s proposed monthly rate and fuel charge was $16.48.  Waste Management’s was $16.84.  Allen County Refuse, another bidder, priced itself out of the running at $17.34.

Ada council will review solid waste bids on Sept. 1
