Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The medium cart was never used and, after repeated requests finally picked up. The large cart that we use is fully paid. All incorrect charges/assessments should be canceled and resolved.

Staff Comments: According to Republic Services, the assessment should include the cost one 64-gallon container with late fees ($110.54) as well as backbilling from Q2 2019 ($71.42), which would equal $181.96.  Property currently has two registered dwelling units. At the start of Quarter 4 2019, resident had both a 64-gallon and a 96-gallon cart at the property. Staff records show that UDRF for the residential dwelling unit with the 96-gallon cart was received by the City of Saint Paul on 11/26/2019 send to the hauler on 12/01/2019. Therefore, staff recommends reducing Republic's suggested assessment amount of $181.96 by $34.15 to $147.81.
