Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Resident stated that they are being billed erroneously on account for 628 Portland Avenue. They stated that they had submitted a vacancy request as of 09/2018 and therefore should not be charged for the account. They have been trying to get this rectified with the hauler since Quarter 1 2018.

Staff Comments: City of Saint Paul records confirm that there was a vacancy request submitted on 09/2018. Therefore we recommend removing the assessment.
