Tax Assessment Worksheet
Postcard Returned by: Chris Bryant
Cost: $354.29
Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Service; Apr 1 - Jun 30 2019
Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling
Billing Time Period: 3rd Quarter of 2019 (July 1 - September 30)
Invoice Date(s): July 1 - September 30
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Resident stated that did not receive invoice for garbage hauling services until their Q3 invoice in June 2019. When they received their bill in the amount of $141.81, they paid that bill, aloing with all their previous overdue bills, which amounted to $308.08 in service fees + late fees totalling $48.55.

Therefore the payment would have been credited to the resident's account.

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 April to June 2019.
