Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I called number on first notice to pay balance at Republic Services when it was received. I was told there was no balance to by paid and account was current by Republic Services. I asked that a note was made to my account regarding our conversation. Please check with Republic Services to confirm. Also, original notice was for amount of $122.34. The invoice and final notice is for amount of $116.25. In speaking with a City of St. Paul employee, I was told that there were charges were for extra garbage/baggage. I have not had any extra pickups or excessive garbage. Even further, I have auto payment set on my account. I believe a mistake was made.

Staff Comments: According to information provided by Republic Services, the property owner did not make a payment during Quarter 1 2019. The pending assessment amount does not include any charges for extra bags. The property owner is responsible for paying the delinquent charge to the City.
