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): Property owner states that they do not feel that it is fair that there were charged $2.88 as a late fee. She is low income and feels that she is paying too much for the actual amount of garbage that she generates.
Staff Comments: Staff confirmed with the hauler that the payment for Quarter 3 2020 invoice was made on 07/31/2020, the same day that the late fee of $2.88 was added to the account. As a courtesy, staff recommends a one-time removal of the assessment. Currently the property owner has the lowest level of service that is available through the coordinated collection program. Staff have noted her complaints regarding the program.
