Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given : Property owner wants to know why they owe for Quarter 4 2021. They stated that they sent the money order for $242.00 around November 4, 2021. They are unsure whether it was sent to the hauler or to the city. When they spoke to the customer service representative at Waste Management, they stated that they had not received this payment. Therefore, they believe that they may have sent it to the city.

Staff Comments: Both city and hauler records shows that there were no payments made for the Quarter 4 invoice and assessment. There was a money gram that was purchased by the property owner in the amount of $242.38 on 11/8/2021. After calling the Money Gram customer service line, staff confirmed that the money gram was never cashed. However, it appears as though the property owner was incorrectly assessed during this time period. The current property owner purchased the property on 4/1/2021 and on 5/9/2021 called the hauler to set up a new account. The CSR did this but did not cancel the account for the previous property owner. Therefore both accounts were billed for Quarter 3 and Quarter 4 2021. Since the Quarter 4 2021 assessment includes the invoices for both accounts, staff recommends reducing the assessment to $116.38. This would be for original invoiced amount of $101.20 as well as three late fees.
