Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): My trash has not been picked up since September 30, 2019. I phoned in a request for a temporary service hold months ago.

Staff Comments: Bill is for one 94-gallon container with a charge of $24 for 8 extra bags and three finance fees of $4.38. Representative from Waste Management stated that they had not received a request for a temporary service hold for the property. They stated that the property owner did call on 01/15/2020 and stated that they were looking for a vacation hold. However, there are no records of a hold being put into place. In addition, since September 2019, there have been no reports of the trash not being put out for collection. Therefore, staff recommends approving the assessment.



WHEREAS, the Office of Financial Services Real Estate Section has attached to this Council File both a report of completion outlining the costs and fees associated with Collection of Delinquent Garbage Bills for services during October to December 2019. (File No. CG2001A2, Assessment No. 200101) 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


WHEREAS, a public hearing having been conducted for the above improvement, and said assessment having been further considered by the Council and having been considered financially satisfactory; Now, Therefore, Be It


RESOLVED, that pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Saint Paul City Charter, said assessment is hereby ratified and reduced to from $154.93 to $78 and made payable in one installment.
