Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Per Republic records and with speaking with live agents, our account is up to date and we do not owe any funds. We also, did not take ownership of this property until November 21, 2018 and thus are in no way responsible for the entire debt claimed.

Staff Comments: When an unpaid bill is turned over to the City, the garbage hauler will zero out the property owner's account. When the hauler looks at the account balance, they will not see the amount that has been turned over to the City. The City charges the delinquent balance to the property, not the owner. Because the previous owner left a portion of their bill unpaid, the new property owner is now responsible for the delinquent amount. The property owner can try to contact the title company to try to recover the outstanding amount the previous owner failed to pay, but the current property owner is ultimately responsible for the delinquent charge.



WHEREAS, the Office of Financial Services Real Estate Section has attached to this Council File both a report of completion outlining the costs and fees associated with Collection of Delinquent Garbage Bills for services during October to December 2018. (File No. CG1901E4, Assessment No. 190070) and the assessment roll including all properties for which these assessments are proposed for Council ratification; and


WHEREAS, the City Council’s Legislative Hearing Officer has reviewed an appeal of this assessment and developed a recommendation for the City Council with respect to this assessment; and


WHEREAS, a public hearing having been conducted for the above improvement, and said assessment having been further considered by the Council and having been considered financially satisfactory; Now, Therefore, Be It


RESOLVED, that pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Saint Paul City Charter, said assessment is hereby deleted.
