Staff Comments: The City's cart delivery records show that the cart distributor attempted to deliver 1 64-gallon Medium cart to the property on 9/13/18. The cart delivery was unsuccessful due to owner refusal. The property owner then called the City's garbage information line on 10/3/18. The customer service representative's message stated: "He is very upset that he is being forced into garbage service he does not need. He has a commercial cart for his business and does not want the additional service. He would like to speak to who ever made these decisions as he feels they are unjust." The property owner is responsible for this delinquent charge as he was responsible for accepting the garbage cart that was delivered to ensure that he was receiving the services he was paying for.

The city must legislate in good faith and carry out its obligations under the Charter. Petitioners filed a lawsuit in district court on February 7, 2019. On May 30, 2019, Judge Castro ruled that, “THE CITY COUNCIL DID NOT PROPERLY EXERCISE ITS AUTHORITY IN REFUSING TO HAVE ORDINANCE 18-39 PLACED ON THE BALLOT.” All collection activities and pending aszessments must be put on hold and/or laid over until: (1) The lawsuit, Clark vs. City of St. Paul, is decided pursuant to any and all appeals; and (2) Ord 18-39 is approved by voters in a referendum. +1 -1 1
