Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they paid their Quarter 2 2022 invoice in May 2022. They spoke with Waste Management and the customer service representative stated that there was no payment received.

Staff Comments: Hauler records show that the initial payment was received on 5/19/2022 at the correct lock box address. However, it was returned to the property owner due to a lack of information necessary to apply the payment to the account. While the hauler was unable to provide specific information regarding what information was missing from the payment, the billing manager confirmed that it was most likely the account ID number that was not included. Therefore staff recommends approving the assessment.
