Tax Assessment Worksheet

Postcard Returned by: Vang Xiong

Cost: $344.92

Hauling Service(s) Provided: Unpaid Garbage Bill; April 1 - June 30

Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling

Billing Time Period: Quarter 2 (April - June) 2022

Invoice Date(s): April 1 - June 30

Garbage Hauler: Waste Management

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that Waste Management failed to mail the invoice to the correct address. The invoice for garbage services was sent to 841 Rose Avenue in St Paul which was their mailing address almost three years ago. When the mailing addressed changed to 15185 15th St N, Stillwater MN 55082, the property owner called Waste Management, who was the assigned hauler at the time, to update it on the account. The mailing address for the property has also been updated with Ramsey County. Therefore, the invoice should have never been sent to 841 Rose Ave. On 7/25/2022 the property owner called Waste Management and spoke with a Nicole, a customer service representative, who stated that it was Waste Management's fault that the invoices were sent to the wrong address. Therefore the property owner stated that they should not have to pay any assessed late fees.

Staff Comments: Staff confirmed that they did send an update to the hauler in March 2020 informing them of the change in mailing address. However, the mailing address was never updated. Therefore staff recommends eliminating the total late fees of $44.97 and reducing the assessment to $299.95.



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.
