Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): After speaking to someone in your office in June I had submitted a non-occupied unit application to remove one of the two bins I had.  I have a duplex but the 2nd unit is not permanently occupied and I was informed that I could submit to have one container removed. The container was removed prior to the July - Sept service.  When I received my bill I called Republic and they indicated that there was a credit that would be applied in October.  Since I did not have service for a 2nd container for the current period I suggested that it made sense to subtract the amount for the one container and pay the amount for the service that was provided. In August I received a late payment notice.  I spoke with someone in your office and they indicated that I needed to pay the bill in its entirety, which I did, but not before a late payment was applied. The bill for the service period of Oct through Dec came through with a credit of $6.05, i.e., the credit from July - Sept completed paid for the October billing plus a little extra.  But I continue to receive a notice from the city of the assessment of $2.72.

Staff Comments: Hauler requested that the assessment be removed as a courtesy. Therefore, staff recommends removing the assessment.
