Staff Comments: This property is classified as a three-family dwelling according to Ramsey County property tax records.

The property is responsible for paying the outstanding balance that is owed to the City. Under citywide garbage service, all residential properties with up to four units, including rental homes and townhomes, are required to have a garbage cart and receive garbage service for each dwelling unit. The property owner must provide garbage service for all occupied dwellings. There is no option to opt out of the citywide garbage service. The property owner may contact your garbage hauler to adjust the size of the garbage carts to accommodate the service levels for the three Residential Dwelling Units at the property, but the City cannot reduce the number of garbage carts at the property.

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
