Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that he moved from another property in Sept. 2019 where he also had Aspen Waste. When they set up the new property, they found that their payments were being applied to their old account not their new property account. The property owner stated that he believed that this issue had been resolved with Aspen in/around January 2020, but he has now received a notice of pending assessment. There was a payment made of $102.43 on January 20, 2020. They do not believe that this is a valid referral, as they stated that they are set up on auto-pay with Aspen.
Staff Comments: The hauler reviewed both accounts and stated that rather than the payments being applied wrong, the customer was actually submitting the payment online himself and paid the wrong account. Nonetheless this was recognized, corrected and the customer was refunded for the overpayment. As for the Quarter 1 2020 assessment; a payment of $102.43 was made to incorrect account (671 Simpson). This payment was reimbursed to the resident on 02/07/2020. Therefore staff recommends approving the assessment.
