Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Please be advised that I AM NOT the owner of this property.  My name is Taiwo Reuben and I am the daughter of Babatunde Reuben who is the property owner.  I am submitting this dispute on his behalf because  currently he is out of the country on private matters.  On 03/19/2019 I received a letter informing me the dispute I submitted on his behalf was denied.  I contacted my father abroad and informed him of this decision.  I further informed him the reason, as stated in the letter was, "There have been no vacancies for this property reported to the City." My father told me this is not true.  He said to inform you he did contact the garbage company and spoke to a female representative to whom he requested his garbage service be suspended with a vacancy hold. She agreed to complete his request.  With that said my father wishes to attend a legislative hearing, upon his return to the United States, to further dispute these charges.

Staff Comments: There have been no vacancies reported to the City for this property. According to information provided by Republic Services on 3/25/19, the only vacantion hold on record for the property is from 12/25/18 - 6/24/19. The property owner is responsible for the delinquent amount for garbage service during Quarter 4 2018 (October - December).
