Memorandum
Attached for your review and consideration is a resolution to approve an amendment to the City's contract with Recycle Ann Arbor for Interim Operations of the Ann Arbor Material Recovery Facility (MRF) for processing recyclable materials in the City.

Then on December 6, 2018, the Environmental Commission passed a resolution requesting that the City Council have the City Administrator consider not issuing the RFP until the SWRMP process is complete.
