Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The property is a duplex, but the City says it’s a triplex. The basement is finished but its not approved for living. I've tried to get it changed to a duplex by talking to the county and the city. On January 7, 2019 submitted paperwork to the city indicating its a duplex. I'm being billed for 3 carts and this is a duplex.

Staff Comments: Staff will review. Ramsey County property tax records indicate property is a Three Family Dwelling.
