BARSTOW, CALIF. – Barstow City Council approves 4th Intergovernmental Support Agreements (IGSA) with U.S Army Fort Irwin. IGSAs were established through the FY13 National Defense Authorization Act as a formal public to public agreement between Army installations and their state or local government to provide, receive or share installation support services. The Secretary of the Army has delegated authority to Garrison Commander to execute agreements on behalf of the United States.

The 4th IGSA agreement will be for the Solid Waste Services needed in Fort Irwin. This is estimated to be over $90 million for a 10-year contractual agreement. The City of Barstow has selected SpecPro to fulfill the Solid Waste Service Agreement. The City of Barstow will receive a 3% fee in order to manage the agreement.

Fort Irwin and the City of Barstow have had 3 IGSAs. 2021-2022 that encompass, Animal Control Services on the installations, Base Operation Support Services, and Central Mail Services. They have all been on a 10-year contractual agreement.

β€œThis will continue to strengthen both of our relationships as Fort Irwin is saving money, providing additional revenue, and labor streaming to our local community,” said Barstow City Manager Willie Hopkins Jr.
