A certificate of service is just a piece of paper you add to the package of documents you send that says the following (with your signature). Just go to the hearing and give them your side of the story. Say it was a mistake and let the hearing officer know the address of the property where the dumped trash really is behind.
“Lastly, the notice says, “NOTE: A copy of any statement, document, photograph or other exhibit filed by the Respondent with the plea of Deny is attached to this Order.” However, the original photograph is conveniently missing from the attached documentation.”
Although I havent’ read the notice in whole, I believe this is just a form notice. I presume YOU would be the respondent, and the DPW would attach anything that you sent in (docs, photos, etc) to the order and send it to any other parties. I wouldn’t worry about it.
