Tax Assessment Worksheet
Postcard Returned by: Shah L. Vang
Cost: $117.80
Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Service Large Cart weekly; 3 Late Fees; Oct 1-Dec 31 2019
Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling
Billing Time Period: 4th Quarter of 2019 (October 1 - December 31)
Invoice Date(s): October 1 - December 31
Garbage Hauler: Republic
Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): 727 Van Buren Avenue is a registered rental property with the City of St. Paul and Ramsey County accordingly. We have no idea where the garbage hauler sent the first billing to, and we have since update our billing address with the garbage hauler. Moreover, it has come to our attention that the garbage hauler neglected to pick up trash services for a period of 4 weeks during the city wide garbage kick off. We are asking that you delete the assessment of $117.80 from the captioned file as we are in no fault.
Staff Comments: Staff records of the Notices of Nonpayment's sent to the property owner during Quarter 4 2019 indicate that Republic Services did have an incorrect mailing address for the property owner. In regards to the missed pick ups, the hauler has confirmed that there have been no missed pick ups for this property since the beginning of the coordinated collection program. Therefore staff recommends removing the late fees and reducing the assessment to $102.44.
