Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling

Billing Time Period: 3rd Quarter of 2020 (July 1 - Sept 30)

Invoice Date(s): July 1 - Sept 30

Garbage Hauler: Advanced Disposal Services

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Not going to happen. I explained to company that mail was delayed (see STRIB/CNN/FOX/CNBC for info on issues with mail delivery problem in Chicago) during this time. Payment mailed 7/25/2020.

 

Staff Comments: Under the current city contract, all haulers are able to charge late fees for payments that are received after the invoice due date. As the payment for the Q3 2020 invoice was received after July 25, 2020, the hauler was correct in charging a late fee of $2.88.

The solid waste program is only able to recommend removing late fees due to a delay when the delay is a direct result of an error made by the city of the hauler. Therefore, as the delay was due to a circumstance outside the city or the hauler's control, staff recommends approving the assessment.
