On August 22, 2019, the MN Supreme Court overruled the City’s claim and decided that the Petition for a referendum is NOT preempted by MN Statutes, is NOT an unconstitutional interference, and does NOT conflict with state public policy. /// THEREFORE: The referendum is on the ballot, AND customers are owed refunds plus compensation. /// PLEASE lay over, cancel, and/or withdraw RLH-AR-19-74, RLH-AR-19-86, and all other azsessments for the City’s cost of providing Collection of Delinquent Garbage Bills for services during January to March 2019.
9/11/2019 11:04 AMEric Lein (#2 of 3) Against /// PETITION IS LEGALLY SUFFICIENT. On November 14, 2018, RES 18-1922 was adopted, “Finding the Petition for a referendum of ORD 18-39 is legally sufficient….” HOWEVER, in an attempt to bypazs the Charter’s longstanding requirements, the City Council: (1) refused to suspend ORD 18-39, and (2) refused to place ORD 18-39 on the ballot, claiming (in error) that, “…the subject matter of the Petition is preempted by Minnesota Statutes §§ 443.28 and 115A.94, is an unconstitutional interference with the Agreement between the City and the Consortium, and conflicts with state public policy…”
9/11/2019 11:02 AMEric Lein (#1 of 3) Against ?? PAYMENT DUE TO CUSTOMERS. Trash collection fees and charges that accrued after November 14, 2018, have been and continue to be billed and enforced in error. Customers forced to pay for service they do not want should receive: (1) refunds; and (2) compensation for time spent disputing invalid charges. ?? CITY CHARTER Sec. 8.05 requires that: “Any ordinance…upon which a petition is filed…shall be suspended in its operation as soon as the petition is found sufficient. If the ordinance…is not thereafter entirely repealed, it shall be placed on the ballot at the next election…”
