Englander Calls for Sewer and Trash Vacancy Adjustments for Affected Residents of Aliso Canyon Gas Leak
Posted by Councilmember Englander on January 29, 2016 at 11:36 AM
This Tuesday, I submitted a motion requesting LA Sanitation be instructed to provide Sewer Service Charge (SSC) vacancy adjustments and Solid Waste Resource Refuse Fee refund credits for the full period of displacement to customers displaced from their homes due to the Aliso Canyon Gas Leak.
Over 3,600 families have now been relocated due to the Aliso Canyon Gas Leak. These are residents whose homes are vacant and are not utilizing the sewer, refuse collection and recycling services provided by the City. I appreciate the Bureau of Sanitation’s acknowledgment of this and their efforts to reduce these fees for our displaced residents.
Customers are only eligible for refund credits if they no longer place any of their collection containers out for service.Requests should be submitted to LA Sanitation rather than the Office of Finance and may be submitted within one year of the date of the charge rather than the six months specified in the Code. Call LA Sanitation at 800 773-2489 or 311 to receive assistance 24-hours/day 7-days/week.
