Uncertainty over provincial rules has city staff favouring a short-term contract for garbage pickup to give it more flexibility, even if it comes with a higher cost.
A report going to the city's environmental protection, water and waste management committee next week recommends the city consider a three-year contract starting in 2020.
If councillors approve this short-term deal it would mean an approximately $10 per year per household price hike in 2020, another at about the same price in 2021 and a smaller hike in the final year.
(...)Staff argue that could leave the city struggling because of changes the previous provincial Liberal government brought in.
