Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): We bring our trash to Twin Cities Refuge and dont garbage service.  We dont have muc trash.  We cant afford the bill.

Staff Comments: 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. Property owners must provide garbage service for all occupied dwellings. There is no option to opt out of the citywide garbage service. The property owner is responsible for paying the outstanding charge, as garbage service was provided from April through June 2019. The property owner is currently using a 35-gallon Small Weekly. If the property owner prefers the Small Every Other Week cart, staff can help arrange this swap with Advanced Disposal.

(File No. CG1903B2, Assessment No. 190126) 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

RESOLVED, that pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Saint Paul City Charter, said assessment is hereby ratified and reduced from $80.90 to $60.83 and payable in one installment.
