Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they are destitute and handicapped and would like to speak with a hearing officer to see if he can get his assessment lifted or reduced.

Staff Comments: Hauler records confirm that service was provided for both a 64-gal cart and a 94-gal cart. This lead to an initial invoiced amount of $203.37. The property owner did make a payment of $100.00 on 5/21/2022 that was applied to the original invoiced amount. However, the remaining balance, plus late fees was sent to the city to be assessed. Therefore staff recommends approving the assessment. Staff did submitted a unoccupied dwelling registration form for the property owner on 9/27/2022 for the 94-gal cart as well as a request to switch out the remaining 64-gal cart for a 35-gal cart with every other week service.
