Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Services Oct 1 - Dec 31 2018

Garbage Hauler: Republic Services

Type of Order/Fee: Garbage Hauling

Billing Time Period: 4th Quarter 2018 (Oct 1 - Dec 31)

Invoice Date(s): Oct - MISSING / Nov - 11/30/2018 / Dec - 12/31/2018

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I had paid a total of $77.37 for services from 10/1 to 21/31/18. First payment was 23.45 on 12/20, in my name on invoice #0923-003755027, acc# 3-0923007045, service from 12/1 to 12/31/18.  I called and change to my name from previous owner on 12/1/18.  I received an invoice stated Jon B Tran or Current Property Owner for 77.37 acc# 309238604510.  I called and made payment of 53.92 by credit card on 12/24/18, confirmation # 298225342052.  Apparently when the previous owner forwarded to me the original bill that he received but had not paid because the sale of the property was completed before 10/1.  I did not know about the new service arrangment in St. Paul at the time.  Any way I had paid Republic $77.37.  The original bill was $70.34 sent to Jon B Tran in September.  I feel now that they should refund to me the extra charge that I was not aware of as the new owner.  Why am I being harassed with invoice send from the City of St. Paul?

Staff Comments: The amount of $24.27 was sent as a delinquent charge over to the City. This charge is from the previous owner, Jon B Tran. If the previous owner did not pay a portion of the Quarter 4 2018 bill, the new owner of the property is still responsible for the delinquent charge. The City charges the delinquent amount to the specific proprety. The new property owner can contact the title company to try to recover the outstanding amount the previous owner failed to pay, but ultimately, the new owner is still responsible for this delinquent amount.
