Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner broke his arm in December 2021 and has been unable to work since then. Therefore; he wants to know if the assessment can be removed.

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. There is no option to opt out of the citywide garbage service. As garbage service was provided from October - December 2021, staff recommends approving the assessment. However, staff would also like to note that the property owner is currently paying for a 64-gal cart and has the ability to reduce their service level to a 35-gal cart with every other week pick up.
