Invoice Date(s): July 1 - September 30

Garbage Hauler: Republic

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that she made a payment to the hauler in July 2019.

Staff Comments: There is no record of payment during Quarter 3 2019. There were two payments made during Quarter 4 2019. The first payment of $117.80 appears to have been made to cover the Quarter 3 2019 assessment. However, as the payment was submitted after the Quarter 3 2019 assessment had been sent to the city on September 30, 2019, it would have been applied as a credit to the account. Another payment was also made to the account on December 3 2019 for $102.44. This appears to have been for the Quarter 4 invoice amount of $102.44. Therefore, with both payments, the property owner would have a total of $117.80 in credits. This is accurately reflected in the Quarter 1 2020 bill where it appears as though the invoice amount of $99.43 was covered by the remaining credits on the account. The leftover credit amount of $18.37 was applied to the Quarter 2 2020 bill. Therefore, staff recommends approving the assessment.
