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.
