   B.   Invoice: The village will provide the contractor with the number of occupied units within the village on a monthly basis for billing purposes.  The contractor will invoice the village for all serviced units within the village on a monthly basis.  The village will invoice the resident the proper amount established by the contract which the resident is obligated to pay.
   C.   Senior Citizens Discounts: Village residents that are sixty five (65) years of age or older and/or live alone or with their spouse may qualify for the monthly unit rate stated above. The village will determine those residents that qualify for the senior rate and will notify the contractor as to the number of units that qualify for billing purposes. Seniors must demonstrate their status with the village and the village will verify the status of the resident.
   D.   Government And Regulatory Fees: The above prices include all current federal, state, county, local or other taxes, fees, surcharges or similar charges relating to the collection and disposal of the city's solid waste (the "fees"). Any increase in the fees or any new fees imposed that specifically impact general business conditions or permitted pollution control facilities (i.e., landfills, transfer stations, compost facilities) following the date of this agreement, the parties agree to negotiate in good faith any such price increases provided that the contractor provides evidence of the increase to the village. In addition, in the event that changes with federal or state statute or regulation, there occurs a change in the regulatory requirements which requires further separation of municipal solid waste which has general applicability to similar waste haulers and which materially increases the contractor's costs, the parties agree to negotiate in good faith any such price increases. In the event of any increase for any of the above, the increase would not take effect until the next scheduled price increase date. (Ord. 14-1719, 1-28-2014; amd. Ord. 19-1954, 10-22-2019)
