§ 8.11.030  EXCLUSIVE COMMERCIAL FRANCHISE.
   The exclusive commercial franchise is intended to operate independently of, but not in conflict with, the non-exclusive waste collection program established in Chapter 8.10 of this code.
   (A)   The exclusive commercial franchise is a mechanism through which the city and Old Town customers desire to achieve a beautification of the franchise area, a general reduction in the number of solid waste bins located along the public right-of-way within the franchise area, and if possible, a reduction of the cost for solid waste collection and disposal services.
   (B)   To serve these ends, and upon agreement with the city, the person holding the exclusive commercial franchise shall collect the solid waste, and green waste generated and accumulated by Old Town customers in solid waste bins located in the franchise area, including bins located in the bin enclosures, and those other locations specified in the contract or franchise by and between the city and the person holding the exclusive commercial franchise.
   (C)   The person holding the exclusive commercial franchise may alter levels of solid waste collection and disposal service provided to Old Town customers upon agreement with the Old Town customers.
   (D)   In the event a dispute regarding a change in the level of service or other such issue arises between the person holding the exclusive commercial franchise and an Old Town customer, and such dispute cannot be resolved between the parties, then the City Manager shall hear and arbitrate the matter.
