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

Invoice Date(s): Oct - 10/31/2018 / Nov - 12/01/2018 / Dec - 12/31/2018

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I paid the bill in full the first time we received it.  (We had recently purchased the property).  Previously, I'm assuming, it was sent but addressed to the former property owners, and since it is a federal crime to open mail not addressed to you we did not open it.  We just handed the mail over to the real estate agent selling the home.

Staff Comments: The property was sold on 9/28/18. The Q4 2018 bill was sent out on 9/20/18, addressed to the previous owner. The property owner made a payment for garbage service for Q1 2019 on 2/8/19. The property owner attempted to make a payment for Quarter 4 2018 on 2/25/19, but the check was returned by Ken Berquist & Son Disposal. The property is still responsible for the delinquent charge, as no payment was received for Quarter 4 2018 and service was provided from October through December 2018.


WHEREAS, the Office of Financial Services Real Estate Section has attached to this Council File both a report of completion outlining the costs and fees associated with Collection of Delinquent Garbage Bills for services during October to December 2018. (File No. CG1901E2, Assessment No. 190068) and the assessment roll including all properties for which these assessments are proposed for Council ratification; and
