Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I have a periodic notice of nonpayment that was sent to my house just yesterday from the garbage collection service. I have not been getting a bill from them. The last bill that I got, I paid $100 on it, and the new amount is $156.90, so I don’t have a problem paying that, but I got this letter here, shortly after that for an assessment for $261.58. And I’m noticing a problem with this garbage collection services, that there continues to be adding $100 here, $100 there, on my bill, and you guys helped me to straighten out $200 extra that was added to my bill last time, which they corrected. Again, they sent me the bill, I paid them, now they’re sending me another bill but they have brought it to your attention before they even mail me out a bill, and the amount is incorrect. The amount here is saying $261.58 but I have a bill, in writing, for $156.90 from garbage collection services Waste Management of Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Staff Comments: Hauler confirmed that the payment of $100 was made on 5/21/2020. Therefore it would have been applied to the Quarter 2 2020 invoice. Staff recommends approving the assessment.
