What is a franchise?
A franchise is an exclusive contract awarded to a private company to provide service. In this case, the franchise will apply to garbage and recycling services for all commercial accounts in the Village. The Village of Deerfield has the authority to issue a franchise by state statute and is utilizing this ability to provide “economies of scale” in pricing for businesses.
