Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The garbage bills were being sent to the former owners of our property whose forwarding address was in Alaska because that was the address given to them by the city despite the fact that we had an Aspen account set up under our names already- We rectified this in February. Aspen told us they were forgiving the late fees once we rectified the problem, but that they had already sent some late fees to the city. I was told to contact you regarding our legislative hearing. We were unable to attend due to my work schedule.    We have late fees from trash collection because our bill was being sent to the former owners of the home. Aspen forgave all of the late fees that they could, but apparently some were sent to you before we had called.    I'm a little concerned about the hearing being our only recourse- I am a health care provider and it is difficult for me to get time off during the day.

Staff Comments: The property owner is still responsible to pay the delinquent charge, as garbage service was provided from October through December 2018. The property owner has indicated that Aspen Waste Systems will credit the late fees back. Even if the property owner receives a credit, they still need to pay the delinquent charge to the City.
