Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The property owner purchased the property in July 2020 and reported that there were no containers on site at this time for yard waste. She called Highland and requested new carts. The customer service representative that she spoke to stated that she was responsible for the $150 cart fee from the missing garbage cart and that Highland would not start yard waste until she paid for the garbage cart.

Staff Comments: Hauler confirmed that the property owner did call in 08/2020 to report that there were no yard waste carts at the property and to cancel yard waste service. During this call the customer service representative explained that they would have to charge her a missing cart fee of $150. This is supported by the fact that the property has received yard waste service since the beginning of the city contract. This has been verified by a photo taken of a yard waste cart at the property in October 2019. There are also no records of cart removal from the property. Therefore the city agrees that there should be a charge for a missing cart. However, the city does not agree with the amount of the missing cart fee. The most the haulers can charge for a missing cart is $75. Therefore staff recommends reducing the assessment to $75.00.
