Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I am unable to attend the hearing, but we should not be responsible for the outstanding garbage bill in the amount of $102.44.  We purchased this property on July 18, 2019, and therefore, were never responsible for this bill.  The prior owners are responsible.  Considering this bill is only through June 30th, we're speculating the previous homeowners also did not pay from July 1st through July 17th.  We will not pay those charges as well.  We have always paid our garbage bills on time, which can be verified with our previous address.

Staff Comments: The City charges the delinquent balance to the property, not the owner. Because the previous owner left a portion of their bill unpaid, the new property owner is now responsible for the delinquent amount. Staff contacted the property owner and suggested for her to contact the title company to try to recover the outstanding amount the previous owner failed to pay. The current property owner is ultimately responsible for the delinquent charge.
