Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they had a service hold and should not have to pay the assessment.

Staff Comments: Current hauler records show that the first contact with the property regarding a temporary service hold was in February 2022. Based on the inquiry, the service hold was back dated to 1/1/2022. However, the property owner stated that they originally reached out to the hauler in November 2021 and was able to provide documentation of an email from the hauler that was sent on 11/24/2021 and included instructions on how to request a temporary service hold as well as the temporary service hold form. The property owner stated that they filled out the temporary service hold form and mailed it back to hauler. The form appears to not have been applied as city records show that the property owner submitted an inquiry to the city on 2/1/2022 to find out why the temporary service hold had not been applied to the account. As a response to the inquiry, the hauler stated that customer service representative had found the application for the temporary service hold after speaking to the property owner and had applied the temporary service hold to be effective as of 1/1/2022. Based on the fact that there does appear to have been a delay in applying the temporary service hold, staff recommends removing the assessment.
