Below is account information we received through the freedom of information act for Solid Waste Disposal accounts at the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

There are links below that show you scanned images of the actual documents we received in the freedom of information package.  These tables below were made up from the documents that we received and scanned from the freedom of information package.

5. Fiscal equivalence.  The legislation for regional districts requires a close matching between the benefits and costs of services. The intent is that residents "pay for what they get".  In practice, this can mean that each service that is delivered by the regional district has a cost recovery formula. To this end, the legislation provides a wide range of cost recovery tools including taxes, charges and fees and the flexibility to vary these. As well, it requires that each service be separately accounted for in the budget and accounts of the regional district.

A Primer on Regional Districts in BC Government of BC website

If you take the $75,266 revenue from 2007 and divide that by the 763 paying properties that Bruce Smith who is the Communications Coordinator from the Regional District of Central Okanagan told us there were in that era, then that means properties must have paid $98.64 for the Sugar Loaf Transfer Station in 2007 instead of just the $40.00 utility bill plus the $41.43 for the Landfill on their property tax.  In 2007 North Westside Road properties paid $41.43 on their property taxes for the Westside Landfill $40.00 utility bill plus $41.43 from the property tax = $81.43 so where did the extra revenue come from??  It is beyond us.

We received this Waste/Environment Management Parcel Tax (number of users)
information through Freedom of Information Act from The Regional District of Central Okanagan June 1, 2010.

It shows how many parcels in Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West 2008 - 2010
plus Westside Electoral Area in previous years 2005 - 2007 before the Westside Road portion of the Westside Electoral area became Central Okanagan West and West Kelowna (aka Westbank).

Waste/Environment Management Parcel Tax in Central Okanagan West 2005 - 2010

In 2010 there were 3,137 parcels in Central Okanagan West.  Central Okanagan West is comprised of Trepanier located near the Okanagan Connector, Brent Road on the other side of Peachland, Westbank Indian Reserves #9 and #10, and North Westside Road.

The Regional District of North Okanagan solid waste function is funded entirely through tipping fees.

Something I found interesting is that it was reported in the Vernon Morning Star Oct 26 in the "NORD Waste Matters" page pullout, that NORD landfill is funded entirely by tipping fees, whereas the Regional District of Central Okanagan charges tipping fees plus a parcel tax.

2004 $39.67
2005 $39.11
2006 $38.56
2007 $41.43
2008 $51.95

Isn't that interesting that the RDNO solid waste function is funded entirely through tipping fees and they don't also charge on the property tax bill like the Regional District of Central Okanagan does.  If you look on the property tax bill from the Regional District of Central Okanagan it says waste/environment mgmnt.  RDCO said that is the fee charged for Solid Waste Management for the Westside Landfill.

6. Landfill Closure and Post-Closure Care
The British Columbia Environmental and Enhancement Act sets out the regulatory requirements to properly close and maintain all active and inactive landfill sites. Under environmental law, there is a requirement for closure and post-closure care of solid waste landfill sites. This requirement is to be provided for over the estimated remaining life of the landfill site based on usage.

The remaining capacity of the Westside Sanitary Landfill is 346,556 cubic meters which is expected to be reached by 2011. Closure will involve covering the site with topsoil and vegetation, drainage control, and installing groundwater monitoring wells. Post-closure care activities for the landfill are expected to occur for 25 years and will involve surface and ground water monitoring, maintenance. Based on the 1999 Westside Landfill Report, the total closure costs were estimated at $1,230,500. Accordingly, in 2002 the District transferred an amount equal to the total estimated landfill closure costs to the Capital Projects Reserve Fund. (page 18)

This table below will be worked on over the next while until it is filled in.  We may add a few more tables yet too.

Westside Landfill Closure and Concept Plans - October 27, 2008

Key plans are being drafted to help guide the Regional District of Central Okanagan with the planned closure during 2010 of the Westside Sanitary Landfill. The landfill serves residents and businesses through the Westside District Municipality, District of Peachland and Westbank First Nation reserves.

The Engineering consulting firm CH2M Hill was contracted to develop the Detailed Closure Plan and a Concept design for a possible convenience transfer station that could be located at the landfill, once it is closed and no longer burying solid waste materials. The Regional Board was recently updated on the process of developing those plans and a similar briefing is scheduled for the Westside District Municipality council tomorrow.

In the mid-90’s, the Provincial Government approved a Landfill Operations and Closure Plan for the Asquith Road landfill site. Now that the planned 2010 closure is approaching, a more detailed plan is required in order to meet current Ministry of Environment requirements, including possible landscaping, allowable uses and monitoring of the site for at least 25 years after it is closed.

The consulting team is also working on the concept design, costs and services that could possibly be offered at a convenience transfer station facility, which would be essential in meeting objectives of the Regional Solid Waste Management Plan. With the introduction of the automated waste collection cart program early next year, all residential curbside waste collected from the Westside District Municipality and District of Peachland will be transported to the City of Kelowna Glenmore Landfill. This should result in a corresponding reduction of traffic and activity in and around the Westside landfill.

Regional District staff will continue to work with the Westside District Municipality and other stakeholders throughout the development of the Closure Plan and Conceptual Design to determine the feasibility of providing a convenience transfer station and the associated costs, once the landfill is closed. As the development process is continuing, earlier plans for public sessions in early November have been postponed. The Regional District remains committed to hosting a number of information meetings, providing residents and stakeholders with the opportunity to comment on the proposed plans, services and costs.

The Regional District has developed a webpage with information regarding the Westside Landfill Closure.

Regional District of Central Okanagan Freedom of Information Bylaw 611 Section 75 (5) states the following:

The power to excuse an applicant from paying all or part of a fee if, in the Head's opinion, the applicant cannot afford the payment or for any other reason it is fair to excuse payment where the record relates to a matter of public interest, including the environment or public health or safety.

http://www.regionaldistrict.com/docs/bylaws//Bylaws/Bylaw0611.pdf

-------------------------------------------------

The party seeking a fee waiver bears the burden of providing reasons why the fee should be waived. A simple statement by the applicant that he or she cannot afford the fee is not sufficient.

http://www.cio.gov.bc.ca/services/privacy/manual/sections/sec70_81/sec75.asp

--------------------------------------------------

FOIPP Act Policy and Procedures Manual

Interpretation Note 7 (Section 75(5)):

Waiving fees

There will be some instances when public bodies waive fees, for example, where the applicant is unable to pay the required fee. In other instances, the release of the information will benefit the public at large and the public body cannot justify requiring a fee payment from a single applicant. The decision to waive or reduce a fee is made for each request individually, based on what is fair and equitable in the circumstances of the case. The party seeking a fee waiver bears the burden of providing reasons why the fee should be waived. A simple statement by the applicant that he or she cannot afford the fee is not sufficient.

In determining whether or not a fee should be waived, the head of the public body considers all of the circumstances of the case including but not limited to the following factors:

Whether the payment will cause financial hardship for the applicant;

The extent to which the actual cost of providing the service varies from the fee that may be charged under the Act. If the actual cost is considerably more that the fee, the public body may be less inclined to waive the fee, subject to other considerations;

Whether the applicant is to be granted access to the records requested. If the records are subject to severing or some of the records are not being released, the public body considers the extent to which the released records answer the applicant’s request and considers giving a partial or full fee waiver;

Whether the amount of the fee is more or less than the minimum processing threshold;

Whether the record relates to public health or safety and release is in the public interest; and,

Whether the record relates to the environment and release is in the public interest.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

… It is a fundamental principle of natural justice in a free and democratic society that a citizen has a right of access to the evidence the state has used in making any decision affecting that citizen, and it has been decided that charging a fee for access to such records is a contravention of a person’s charter rights.

It is unfair, and a violation of a person’s constitutional rights for the state to charge a fee for allowing access to documents provided in disclosure or discovery in proceedings against a citizen by the state.
