Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): November 18, 2019 Waste Management received a copy of my sister Veronica Kraft's (Oct 28, 2019) death certificate (noted by wmgmt and my check statement). My check #14177 was cashed by Waste MGMT on Nov.13, 2019 for $65, The WMGMT Co. Never had to pick-up garbage after Nov 7, 2019. 32 Gal toters emplty on the back of her lot. Attached is a Stop Service Agreement filed with Waste Mgmt. I expect the City of St. Paul to cooperate and not send Garbage Collection.

Staff Comments: A letter response was receieved in response to the Invoice and Final Notice that was sent regarding resident’s Q3 assessment from the proeprty owner's brother as the property owner has passed.  The brother stated that he should not have to pay the assessment due to the fact that he had made a payment to Waste Managemetn on November 13 2019 for $65.00. He stated that his sister had passed away in October 28, 2019 and that they reported this to Waste Management on November 13, 2019. Since then, the property had not received garbage services. Staff concludes that the property owner’s brother was mistaking the invoice and final notice for the Q3 assessment for the Q4 bill, which he stated that he had paid. Out of respect for the property owner’s death, staff recommends removal of the assessment for Q3.
