Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): You keep sending me a bill saying that I owe $99.43 for my garbage. It was paid a week after. Quit sending me these bills, figure out what your mistake is, take care of it, call me and let em know that you did it.

Staff Comments: Republic records show that property owner attempted to pay the Q2 2020 invoice on 06/16/2020 but the payment was declined. There was no other payment attempt by the property owner during Q2 2020. As property owner has not provided sufficient proof of payment, staff recommends approving the assessment. It should be noted that the letter referencing the collection being done by Coast to Coast Financial Solutions on behalf of Republic was for a missed payment from May 2014. This was six years before the invoice for Q2 2020 was generated.



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 April to June 2020. (File No. CG2003C1, Assessment No. 200147) 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.
