Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The owner reported that it is only them living in the property and that the last time their MIL suite was occupied was 11/11/2003 but has since remained vacant.

Staff Comments: The property owner has spoken with staff about paying for 2 garbage carts over the past few months, but did not specify that there was a vacancy at the property. In the most recent conversation on 9/18/19, the property owner stated that his parents were living in the MIL suite but passed away. Staff relayed that a vacancy hold could not be applied retroactively and sent him an Unoccupied Dwelling Registration Form to complete. As of 9/30/19, staff has not received a completed form. The vacancy hold has not been applied to this property yet. When the completed form is received, staff will place the vacant unit on a vacancy hold. Staff recommends approving the assessment.
