Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): My mother has not lived at her home, 1619 Juno Ave., St. Paul since she broke her hip last summer.  We started calling the city at the end of the summer into fall.  We did not receive any return phone calls from the city.  We then contact her assigned trash hauler: Aspen Waste Services and have a series of e-mails that followed from Aspen and also the city from early October through April of this year.  I didnt' even get the proper service-hold form until mid October and by then it took some time to get the medical signatures.  If the form would have been available or ready when I started calling, it could have been signed a lot faster!!!  Attached is a pdf with the Service-Hold and e-mails documenting our request for the Service-Hold.  My mother had another fall and has a couple cracks in her pelivs.  Please let me know if I can just come down on 5/16 or if she will need to as well.  Thank you.

Staff Comments: There is a pending credit on the account for Q4 2018 for the service hold put in place with the customers documentation.  This credit will be applied when service is resumed.  Aspen did remove the bill for Q1 of 2019 based on the vacancy information received from the city and did NOT bill for Q2 of 2019.
