Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The bill in dispute is not my bill; it's on a completely different account number. The bill is from the previous owner. I've talked to both city officials and Republic Services multiple times. According to Republic, this isn't my bill. Please see the attached email exchange where Republic states that they have notified the city this is not my bill.

Staff Comments: Republic Services confirmed that this was assessed incorrectly to this address. Staff recommends deleting the assessment.
