Ms. DeVary introduced Niketa Bailey from Dixon Hughes Goodman and the manager on our audit.
Ms. Niketa Bailey stated that I have with me Mr. Matt Davis who is also a senior associate on this
engagement. We met earlier last week with the audit and finance committee and reviewed the
financial statements in detail. I will turn your attention to in your packet to Page 1 of your auditors

report. This is an independent auditors’ report conducted by Dixon Hughes Goodman and states
our responsibility and our opinion on how that went. Page 2 basically states this audit was
conducted in accordance with Generally-Accepted Accounting Principles and in accordance with
government auditing standards. You had a clean audit and there were no issues or findings. The
audit went really well, Liesl and her staff did a great job.
Mr. Chesson (IW) commented that I would like to thank Liesl and her staff. This audit is the third
or fourth report I have done and it’s a breeze because of the good work they do all year long.
Ms. Christian read the motion.

generator availability was at 99%. Overall it has been a fairly good month. Boiler one had a
scheduled 8 day outage that ran as planned. During that time we replace the superheaters. Boilers
one and four had some unscheduled down time due to a few leaks. A new superheater is scheduled
to be installed in unit four in October. We will see 12 months' reliability on those units going
forward.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR UPDATES
Mr. Taylor began his updates. This month we have Robbie Robinson with us for me to introduce.
He is our transfer station manager at the Oceana Transfer Station. He has been with SPSA for 23
years and he has been the manager of the Oceana for the last several years. He started with SPSA
way back in 1991, and he has worked as heavy equipment operator, senior operator and shift
manager and he was promoted to transfer station operator in 2004. He was a Navy Seabee for six
years and he was a heavy construction utilities equipment operator after that. He is married and has
14 year old daughter and is originally from Maine. We are glad to have Robbie with us and
appreciate the fine work he has done for us.
Regarding the landfill we have had no odor complaints. The Cell V cover is about 99.9% complete,
Scott has a bit more hydroseeding to do and that's it.
The Post-2018 Use and Support committee is comprised of Mike Johnson as Chairman, John
15
Barnes, Richard Broad, Eric Martin. Trey, Liesl and I also participate in that. We did meet this
month and Mike I believe has a few words he would like to share with us this morning.
Mr. Mike Johnson (SH) commented that we had a good productive meeting last week. We spent
about three hours just talking about the general terms and provisions of the agreement. Trey is
going to take the feedback he received during that meeting and build that into an initial draft. We
are using a lot of the material that was put together by the technical working group that was
appointed by CAO's last year so that work is not lost. So we should have an initial draft for the
committee next month and will be vetting that internally and should have that agreement to present
to this board well ahead of that March deadline.

FINANCIAL MATTERS
(1)
Financial Reports
Ms. DeVary began by stating that for the month ending September 30th, total revenues exceeded
total expenses by $1.14 million as compared to $2.18 in the previous year. The revenues from
tipping fees are basically unchanged as compared to the same time frame last year. We have
experienced an increase in tire disposal revenue largely due to the continuation of the state's end
user reimbursement program. We’re also pleased to let you know that we received $27,088 in
September and that represents the rebate that we received back for participating in the state's credit
card and ePayables program. If you recall last year at this time it was $12,635, so we are increasing
our participation and being more efficient in how we are issuing our checks and we are getting
money in return. At the end of September municipal tonnages totaled 104,633 as compared to
104,673 a year ago. Portsmouth is down as compared to last year because of them implementing
their curbside recycling program, but it appears Norfolk and Virginia Beach are slightly up as
compared to last year so it is balanced out nicely. The total expenses fiscal year to date were
approximately $9.3 million as compared to $8.2 million in the prior year. The increase as compared
to last year is primarily due to the schedule increases in debt service. They were scheduled that we
would be paying more of our debt off sooner and so that's where the increase is. At Wheelabrator's
request, 940 tons were diverted from the transfer station hauled by SPSA to the regional landfill.
We received a credit in the amount of $44,737, and just for your information total tons diverted
fiscal year to date have been 12,042 tons and that has in turn generated a credit of $573,843. Our
16
budget is looking very well. Cash balances remain at about $23.7 million, designated with $4.4
million in the operating fund, $3.3 million in the tip fee stabilization fund, $6 million in landfill
closure and $10 million in the operating reserve.
Mr. Eric Martin (CH) asked whether anything in the budget tonnages, operational changes or future
costs that would lead us to believe we would are a significant change in tipping fees next year. Ms.
DeVary responded no; it looks like we are steady on maintaining the existing rate.
Ms. Christian read the motion.
Mr. Don Williams (NO) moved, seconded by Mr. McCoy (PO), that the financial reports
subject to audit be approved as presented. The vote of the motion was unanimous.
(2)
Resolution Authorizing Use of the Competitive Negotiation Process in accordance
with the Virginia Public Procurement Act
Ms. DeVary continued that the next item for your consideration in order to formally issue the RFP
for waste disposal services post-2018 we are requesting the board adopt a resolution whereby
authorizing the use of competitive negotiation versus competitive sealed bidding process. The RFP
will be issued tomorrow with the responses due back December 16th and we will e-mail a copy of
the RFP to each one of you tomorrow simultaneously as it is being issued..
Ms. Christian read the resolution as follows.
RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
FOR WASTE DISPOSAL SERVICES POST 2018
WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Southeastern Public Service Authority of Virginia
has determined that competitive sealed bidding for the procurement of post-2018 waste
disposal services is neither practicable nor fiscally advantageous to SPSA because (a) cost is
not the primary consideration in awarding a contract for such services and (b) the procurement
is of a technical nature and the solution is best left to the vendors to propose, rather than limit
the available options, and accordingly procurement should be made by competitive
negotiation;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Executive Director and Deputy Executive
Director of SPSA are hereby authorized and directed to proceed with requests for proposals
for post-2018 waste disposal services in accordance with SPSA’s current Purchasing Policies
and Procedures, provided, the ultimate award of any contract for post-2018 waste disposal
services, including but not limited to the financial terms thereof, shall be subject to the further
and final approval of the Board of Directors following the conclusion of such RFP process in
accordance with such policies and procedures.
Adopted by this Board this 22nd day of October, 2014.
17
Ms. Christian read the motion.
Mr. Don Williams (NO) moved, seconded by Mr. Mike Johnson (SH), that the Resolution
Authorizing the issuance of a Request for Proposal for waste disposal services post 2018 be
approved as read. The vote of the motion was unanimous.

Statement of Revenue and Expenses – Budget to Actual Comparison
As of October 31, 2014, total revenues exceeded total expenses by approximately $1.06 million as compared
to $2.27 million in the previous year. Tipping fee revenue received fiscal year to date is basically unchanged
as compared to the amount received in the prior fiscal year.
For the month ending October 31, 2014, total expenses FYTD were $12.6 million as compared to $11.4
million incurred in the previous year. The increase is primarily reflected in the increase in debt service.
Monthly Expense Line Items
This report provides the actual expenses by month by the type of expense. The majority of the line items vary
in amounts from month to month because they are either: (1) dependent on usage, or (2) timing of payment
and/or check date. The increase in the various salaries and benefits is due to having three (3) bi-weekly pay
periods in the month of October.
Monthly Comparison of Revenues and Expenses
This report illustrates the monthly revenues and expenses. An explanation is included under each graph if
there is a sizeable variance. The straight line in each graph represents the fiscal year 2015 budget on a
straight-lined basis and the line graph represents the prior fiscal year for comparison.
Waste Stream Report
This report has been developed to provide the status of tonnages received as compared to the amounts
budgeted. For the month ending October 31, 2014, municipal waste tonnages (excluding Suffolk waste taken
directly to the landfill) are up 1,016 tons fiscal year to date or approximately less than 1% as compared to the
previous year. Commercial waste received at the transfer stations and RDF plant is down 1.2% as compared
to last year and Navy waste is up 11%.
Treasurer’s Report of Cash Balances
This report captures the monthly activity in each of the depository accounts grouped as either
operating funds, trust funds or debt service funds. As of October 31, 2014 operating cash balances
were $23.6 million representing $4.3 million in the operating account, $3.3 million for tip fee
stabilization fund, $10 million for the operating reserve and $6 million designated for landfill
closure.
RECOMMENDED ACTION: Approve the financial reports as presented.
MOTION: I move that the SPSA financial reports subject to audit be approved as presented.

DEQ Financial Assurance
In accordance with the Code of Virginia, including applicable regulatory regimes, and the requirements
of the various permits, SPSA must provide financial assurance with respect to its ability to satisfy the
costs associated with closing the regional (Suffolk) landfill and other facilities and various post-closure
obligations (see projected costs below).
Last year, SPSA met this requirement through a combination of the local government financial test (as
determined by reference to certain financial ratios derived from SPSA’s most recent audited financial
statements), posting a $1 million irrevocable letter of credit payable to the Virginia Department of
Environmental Quality (DEQ) and issued by Wells Fargo, as authorized by the senior subordinated bond
resolution, and the establishment of a restricted sinking fund. The sinking fund is an alternative to
increasing the letter of credit, and allows SPSA to avoid thousands of dollars in fees that would
otherwise be incurred with an increased letter of credit.
As of June 30, 2014, SPSA had accumulated a total of $6 million for landfill closure costs of which only
$1,206,000 was required to be in a Restricted Sinking Fund in order to demonstrate financial assurance
for the prior fiscal year. Per the attached letter from the DEQ, SPSA has been authorized to meet its
financial assurance requirements for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014 through a combination of the
local government financial test accompanied by a restricted sinking fund in the amount of $3,680,000.
By increasing the restricted sinking fund, the $1 million letter of credit is not required at this time,
resulting in budgetary savings of approximately $16,925 in the current fiscal year.
The current projected closure/post closure costs are detailed below:
