Get Your Garbage Bill Up-To-Date

Posted by on Wed, 07/15/2015 - 11:09am

The Solid Waste Ordinance is being enforced due to the large amount of outstanding solid waste payments, which go as far back as 2009. "In addition to other remedies set forth in this Chapter, where the owner, tenant or lessee of a residential unit fails to pay to the City the applicable garbage collection fee set forth in 50.14 within thirty days of the issuance of the invoice, the City may 1) stop collection of garbage and recyclable material at all of the owner's, tenant's or lessee's residential units, located within the City, and may collect the City issued trash container and the recycling container to all of the owner's, tenant's or lessee's residential units, and 2) file a lien against all of the owner's, tenant's or lessee's residential units in the amount due to the City for garbage collection and file suit to enforce the amount of the lien, and collect interest in the amount of eighteen percent (18%) per annum and reasonable attorney's fees."
