Billing Time Period: Quarter 2 (April - June) 2021

Invoice Date(s): April 1 - June 30

Garbage Hauler: Advanced Disposal

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given):Resident stated that they moved in to the property on April 2021 and did not receive garbage can until May 2021. Therefore the resident does not want to pay for the month that service was not provided.

Staff Comments: Staff contacted the hauler on 10/12/2021 to verify the property owner's claims. As the hauler did not provide any evidence to refute these claims, staff recommends reducing the assessment to $63.25. This amount would cover the base cost of service for a 64-gal cart from 5/1/2021 - 6/30/2021.

Staff Update 10/25/21:  Hauler confirmed that the initial invoice for Quarter 2 2021 was for a 64-gal cart. Their records confirm that there was a 64-gal cart at the property when the property owner took possession on 4/9/2021. The property owner did call the hauler on 4/19/2021 to update the account and again on 4/23/2021 to request a 35-gal cart. Hauler records confirm that the 35-gal cart was delivered on 5/7/2021 to the property.  Based on this timeline, the hauler credited the account $76.92 for a 64-gal from 4/18/2021 - 6/30/2021 on 7/5/2021. Therefore staff recommends approving the assessment. Staff does want to note that the Quarter 3 2021 invoice does include a service charge for a 35-gal cart from 4/18/2021 - 9/30/2021 to cover that time period.
