Tax Assessment Worksheet

Postcard Returned by: Richard Thomas

Cost: $301.87

Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Service; Jul 1 - Sep 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

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Resident states the property is a single family home; not a duplex and that the city has verified this in the past. County records and the information sent to the hauler by the city’s garbage program lists the property as 2 residential units. The resident also states he only has one trash cart and has never had a second one. Residents states he has tried to resolve this issue with Republic without success.

Staff Comments: At the start of the program, resident was delivered a 68-gallon and a 35-gallon cart as the property was classifed as a two-family dwelling. Hover, an e-mail sent from Republic confirms that they confirmed with the resident on 10/2/2018 that second account for the property was cancelled. This counts as an agreement for Republic stop billing  for the second 64-gallon container and remove the second container. Despite the container not being removed, the agreement remains.  Since the Quarter 3 2019 assessment was for back  billing for the 68-gallon cart, staff recommends removing the assessment.
