Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they made multiple efforts with Waste Management to pay Quarter 2 2022 bill paid. They initially tried to pay their bill online, but the system was down. They then called the customer service line to try to pay bill and a customer service agent was supposed to call them back within 24 hours to assist them. However they never received a call back. Therefore, due to multiple attempts to pay their Q2 2022 bill, the property owner does not feel that they should have to pay any assessed late fees.
Staff Comments: Hauler records show that the property owner did call Waste Management on 6/2/2022 to pay their invoice. Notes on the call indicate the customer service representative had approved waiving the late charge but that the phone call ended before they could follow through on the request. Therefore, staff recommends removing the total amount of $41.88 in late fees from the assessment. This would reduce the assessment to $279.36.
