Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I paid my bill via check/mail on 7/14/2021 for $59.22 to Advanced Disposal. I am low income and have applied for Disability. My small trash container is rarely full. I have every other week pick-up and usually only have 2 small plastic grocery bags of trash every other week. I am begging for a reduced rate and financial help. You have failed to help me with this matter. I had to use money I receive from the county to pay this bill. Money I would have use for personal hygiene products/HH items. I will be informing the better business bureau of your failure to help low income residents, to help other residents stay in their homes, and especially during a pandemic.
Staff Comments: Hauler records show that there was one payment made during Quarter 1 2021 to the account on 3/16/2021 for $5.00. Hauler records do show that the property owner did send a note that was received on 6/16/2021 stating that she was having financial difficulties and needed the hauler to lower the bill. However, this was not possible as the property owner was already at the lowest level of service. Therefore staff recommends approving the assessment.
