Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I am asking to be forgiven for this charge for the following reasons: I, Wendy Zarse, am the owner of this property, only as of 19 March 2020. I had been working with the family to take possession of the home sooner, but we eventually found ourselves dealing with Probate. The noticed received was my first encounter with the knowledge of an outstanding bill attached to the property. Garbage billing has been up to date since I took possession. Also, the previous owner had not been residing in the home since Summer of 2019. He was in a health care facility, because he was attacked and robbed in the alley around the block. He passed away in November. There were no other persons residing in his home after September 2019. There was no use of the Garbage Service after that.
