Tax Assessment Worksheet

Postcard Returned by: Chinedu Ezirike

Cost: $114.34

Hauling Service(s) Provided: Q3 2020 Delinquent Garbage Bill; service provided July-September; large cart with late fees

Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling

Billing Time Period: 3rd Quarter of 2020 (July 1 - Sept 30)

Invoice Date(s): July 1 - Sept 30

Garbage Hauler: Waste Management

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner states that he has been making quarterly payments through bill pay since the start of the program in 2018.  The property owner states that he has also been receiving assessments from The City for garbage services and therefore he believes his payments to WM are being applied to his WM account that he had prior to the coordinated collection.

Staff Comments: Staff confirmed with the hauler that the property owner had been making payments to their old account with Waste Management instead of their updated coordinated collection account. The property owner currently has a credit on their old account of $503.88, which includes a payment made on 09/14/2020 for the Quarter 3 2020 invoice. This credit will be applied to the updated coordinated collection account for the property. Because this includes a credit for the Quarter 3 2020 payment, staff is recommending that only the late fees be removed from the current Quarter 3 2020 assessment. This would reduce the assessment to $99.43.



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 2020. (File No. CG2004A3, Assessment No. 200165) 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 $114.34 to $36.87.
