Republic Services donates nearly $49,000 to City of Nampa

Republic Services made an unexpected donation of $48,905 to the City of Nampa after receiving a corporate tax credit for using natural gas in their vehicles.

The voluntary donation was also made to other cities Republic Services serves in the Treasure Valley and represents their devotion to our community. Rachele KIein, Business Development Manager for Republic Services said, “We are thrilled to pass on the tax credit received to the communities we serve. The donation represents our commitment to being good neighbors and how much we care for our community.”

Republic Services made donations to the City of Nampa in 2016 and 2017 from their corporate tax credit and previous administrations allocated funds to benefit Nampa’s parks. When the donation was received in June of 2018, rather than transfer to the parks department, Mayor Kling was advised she had the authority to allocate the donation. After learning the North Nampa Grocery Shuttle Program needed funding to keep providing weekly transportation to groceries stores, $20,000 was allocated in August 2018. The weekly shuttle has offered free transportation to grocery stores for North Nampa residents every Saturday for over a year.

At the next Nampa City Council meeting on May 6, 2019, Mayor Kling will submit a proposal for the remaining portion of the donation, $28,905 to the Nampa Shares & Cares program, which provides financial assistance on utility bills for Nampa residents. The program benefits seniors on fixed income and individuals and families on limited income. Under discussion will be a proposal to credit qualified customers $10 per month ($120 annually) on their water/sewer/trash bill.
