Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they purchased this house on May 17th and are being charged for April and half of May's garbage bill. They called Waste Management in May 2022 to inform them that they closed on the property on 05/17/2022. During that call, the customer service representative told them not to pay the Quarter 2 2022 invoice and that it will be assessed to the previous property owner.

Staff Comments: Hauler records confirm that the property owner did call on 5/31/2022 to set up their account. However there is currently no saved recording of the call and the only call notes state that the property owner called to set up the account in their name. Since the hauler can neither confirm or deny that the property owner was told not to pay their Quarter 2 2022 invoice, staff recommends removing the assessment as a courtesy.



WHEREAS, the Office of Financial Services Real Estate Section has attached to this Council File both a report of completion outlining the costs and fees associated with Collection of Delinquent Garbage Bills for services during April to June 2022.
