Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Service; Jul 1 - Sep 30 2019

Billing Time Period: 3rd Quarter of 2019 (July 1 - September 30)

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Resident stated that he should pay less. What he has now is 4 smallest container every other week and only want to pay what he should owe

Staff Comments: There was a small billing error (Republic Services charged all multi-units for one additional day of service) but the City identified the error and Republic Services issued a credit to property owner's account to address the error. The Q3 2019 assessment was $445.11. This consisted of a charge for four 64-gallon carts ($96.08 x4 =$384.32) with late fees totaling $57.63. This would total $441.95. The difference between the actual Q3 2019 invoice and the Q3 assessment ($3.16) has been credited to the property owner's account. In addition, city records have shown that the switch from 64-gallon carts to 35-gallon carts with every other week service was completed in March 2020. Staff therefore 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 July to September 2019. (File No. CG1904A3-1, Assessment No. 190167) 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 payable in one installment.
