Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner states that Waste Management cashed check #11436 for $263.00 back in October that the property owner sent as payment for her Quarter 4 2022 invoices for both 1391 Pleasant Ave ($69.84) and 698 Randolph Ave ($196.16). This was indicated by the fact that they included the payment stubs for both invoices in the same envelope with the check. However, they started to receive notices of nonpayment for 1391 Pleasant Ave. The property owner then called Waste Management and was told that the account for 696 Randolph got credited for the invoiced amount of $196.16. However, Waste Management stated that they never received any payments for 1391 Pleasant Ave. Therefore, the property owner wants to know what happened to the $69.84 that was supposed to cover the invoice for 1391 Pleasant Ave.
Staff Comments: Staff confirmed with Waste Management that the $69.84 was applied to a different account not associated with the property owner. As of April 26, 2023 this amount has been credited to the property owner's account and will be applied to their next invoice. While staff cannot recommend removing the assessment in full, they do recommend removing the late fees $10.47 since the property owner did send the payment on time. This would reduce the assessment to the original invoiced amount of $69.84.
