Although the property owner received incorrect information from Advanced Disposal, the property owner did not provide payment for the Quarter 4 2018 garbage bill. The property is responsible for the delinquent balance, as garbage service was provided from October through December 2018.

5/22/2019 7:14 PMEric Lein Against ••ORD 18-39 was not effective until October 10, 2018. ••ORD 18-39 was “suspended in its operation” (per City Charter Sec. 8.05) when the City Council adopted Resolution 18-1922, “Finding the Petition for a referendum of ORD 18-39 is legally sufficient…” ••ORD 18-40 has been suspended since October 2018. Language in force says: “…This section shall not preclude a****ing property owners from cooperating for arranging for collection services from a licensed hauler, nor other arrangements for reasonable interruption of service.” ••The City and haulers have not complied with MN Stat. Chapter 443. Rates fail to take into account the character, kind & quality of service, of rubbish & method of disposition. Rates fail to take into account the number of people served. ••Charges and ***essments for 1, 2, 3 or 4 unnecessary empty trash carts exceed the benefits to the property and violate MN Stat. Chapter 429 and City Charter Chapter 14. ••Invalid Garbage Contract signed after deadline.
