Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I am being asked by the city of St.Paul , MN to pay $173.46 for trash pick up service I never ordered or recieved from October to December of 2018. I have been told that my house was being billed as a 2 unit duplex but on March 13th, a Ramsey County Assessor did a walk-through of my house and changed my classicification to a single family house, which it has been used for since I bought my house in October of 2018. That $173.46 bill I want to have either removed or cut in half ($86.50).

Staff Comments: The property was classified as a two-family dwelling during Quarter 4 2018. The property was delivered 1 35-gallon Small Weekly cart (serial # 09184336) and 1 64-gallon Medium cart (serial #0818813341) on September 12th, 2018, prior to the start of citywide garbage service. Even though the property owner reclassified the property on March 13th, 2018, the property owner received service for 1 35-gallon Small Weekly cart and 1 64-gallon Medium cart from October through December, 2018. The property owner is responsible for paying the otustanding balance that is owed to the City.
