What's the next step if I request an account deletion and after a reasonable amount of time, nothing happens?

I recently requested deletion of my Stack Exchange account on just one specific Stack Exchange site. I followed the instructions here: How can I delete my account?

I made the request nine calendar days ago. Then I waited. Then I waited some more. Then after a week, I used the contact form to try to request an update.

There's been no update, no communication, nothing except the "scheduled for deletion" banner on my account on that site.

I get that people are busy and such. All I'm looking for is some quick indicator that something is happening, or at least is genuinely going to happen in the future.

What's the procedure for getting such an update if it's not coming from the individual site itself?

Practically - drop the cm team a line through the contact us link. Assuming you have too much activity on the site for automatic account deletion, someone will need to look through your account, dissociate votes and so on And sometimes things slip through the cracks.
