Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that the assessment of $9.62 was for three additional trash bags that were allegedly left out on 02/28/2020. They stated that they confirmed with Advanced Disposal that this charge was incorrect and on 04/20/2020, a representative of Advanced Disposal confirmed that they would remove the charge.
Staff Comments: Staff confirmed with hauler that the $9.62 was actually a late fee as the final invoice payment was not processed until 05/04/2020. The account was credited a total of $12.40 ($9.00 + taxes) for the incorrect charge of three additional bags on 04/27/2020. Due to the fact that the delay in payment was due to an error on the part of the hauler, staff recommends removing the assessment.
