A Walnut Creek-based firm that has helped the city search for a possible new garbage collection and disposal company once its 30-year contract with Republic Services ends in September 2017 received more money for its efforts last week.
Milpitas City Council voted unanimously March 1 to give $200,000 from the city's solid waste fund to HF&H Consultants. The council's action increased the firm's current contract to a maximum amount of $412,250, city reports state.
"HF&H was hired to prepare the request for proposals and to manage the process and to manage the selection process," Milpitas City Engineer Steve Machida said after the meeting. "The RFP uses a two-step evaluation process -- evaluation of a disposal vendor and evaluation of a collection vendor."
