Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Purchased the property on Dec. 28, 2018. The proporty owner doesn't believe he should be billed since he wasn't living there.

Staff Comments: The City charges the delinquent balance to the property, not the owner. Because the previous owner left a portion of their bill unpaid, the new property owner is now responsible for the delinquent amount. The property owner can try to contact the title company to try to recover the outstanding amount the previous owner failed to pay, but the current property owner is ultimately responsible for the delinquent charge.
