Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Late fees of $9.44 should have been removed from the assessment due to a billing error by Waste Management.

Staff Comments: Property currently has three residential dwelling units with three 35-gal carts with weekly pick up. Due to a billing error in which credits were not uniformly applied to the invoices of all three units but to a single dwelling unit, staff is recommending removing the late fees of $9.44 from the assessment and reducing it to the base service level cost of two 35-gal carts with weekly service. This would be in the amount of $134.56.



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 January to March 2020. (File No. CG2002A1, Assessment No. 200120) 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 from $144 to $134.56.
