Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner does not believe that they should have to pay for garbage as they have been forced by the city to use the service.

Staff Comments: Under citywide garbage service, all residential properties with up to four units, including rental homes and town homes, are required to have a garbage cart and receive garbage service for each dwelling unit. Property owners must provide garbage service for all occupied dwellings. There is no option to opt out of the citywide garbage service. The property owner is responsible for paying the outstanding charge, as garbage service was provided from January - March 2021. City staff did leave a voice mail with the property owner informing them of their option to switch to a lower level of service.
