Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Late Fee Medium Cart; Jul 1 - Sep 30 2019

Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling

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

Invoice Date(s): July 1 - September 30

Hauler: Republic

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): This is getting absolutely ridiculous. The billing between St. Paul and Republic is ABSURD. We have automatic payments set up, sometimes they process and sometimes they don’t. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED. Whatever program is being used, is not efficient. I am SICK and TIRED of receiving late fees and notices for non-payment when we can use the same card to pay online just fine. There is absolutely zero reason for delinquent payments when Republic has our information stored for automatic payments. You can’t even have our bill sent to the right person!! It still comes from Republic addressed to Eli Hogan, when we have owned the property since 2018!

Staff Comments: According to the hauler, auto pay was not set up until February 2020. They did state that for Quarters 1 & 2 2020 the initial payments for both quarters were declined due to system error. Staff has communicated with Republic Services to ensure that this error has been addressed. Staff has also confirmed with the hauler that the name on the account has been updated to reflect the current property owner. As a courtesy, staff recommends removing the assessed Quarter 3 2019 late fee of $4.80.
