Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they received a notice of pending assessment from the city for Quarter 1 garbage service in the amount of $9.30.

Hauler stated that property owner did not contact them about not receiving the initial invoice. However, they requested that we remove the assessed late fee of $9.30 as a courtesy.
