4/23/2019 10:43 PMMarguerite DeSpain    I am against all of the aspects of the City Council's Meeting that are focused on ***essing citizens for delinquent garbage bills and opposed to the City Council amending its Charter so it does not have to honor the citizens of St. Paul in their recent petition to the City (that followed all guidelines). It is a travesty of government for you to change the rules after the fact as a way to fight against citizen input. While citizen input is inconvenient, the day you find yourselves legislating citizen input out of your process is the saddest day of your leadership. Hearing input before a program does not excuse the Council from hearing input and making changes during the first months and year of a program. It is irresponsible to ignore those of us participating in the trash program as neighbor-sharers that don't need our own bin. It is irresponsible of the Council to arbitrarily impose penalties on those of us that never had trash pickup in the past, and now are penalized. +1
