Ord 17-29 3/6/2019 10:32 PMCaitlin Stollenwerk Against This ordinance appears to have little support of the very people who would be most impacted by it: locally-owned restaurants that function with hairline margins and cannot absorb cost differentials like the ones created by this proposed ordinance. Why is this responsibility being foisted upon those least able to absorb it and those with the smallest impact, while large corporations are being exempted? The City of St. Paul has sought out a problem and inserted itself into the lives of its citizens as the only solution. If plastic packaging is so detrimental to the environment that this ordinance must p*** immediately to stave off an environmental apocalypse, then the City should enforce it universally, and not just on the small businesses that make St. Paul extraordinary. If that is not the case, then once again, why the City is forcing its personal whims on its constituency, regardless of the economic impact it might have on the very businesses it is designed to protect?

Ord 18-54 11/7/2018 8:39 PMEric Lein For Bureaucratic thinking boggles my mind: FIRST, raise garbage prices; NEXT, raise wages because people can’t afford to live here. __ While considering this new minimum wage ordinance, please understand that recently-adopted garbage ordinances harm many low-paid workers who live in St. Paul. Despite vocal opposition by thousands of residents, only two councilmembers voted against skewed and oppressive garbage price increases that “rolled out” as of 10/01/2018. For garbage there is NO multi-year phase-in, NO sharing, NO opt-out, and there are NO exceptions (unless customers submit plane tickets or doctors’ notes for review by the self-appointed garbage police). REALLY?!! __ Let’s be fair to everyone by letting wages, and garbage prices, move to reasonable levels. REGARDING WAGES: Adopt a thoroughly-vetted plan when the time is right. REGARDING GARBAGE: On 11/14/2018, acknowledge that the citizens’ petition on Garbage Ordinance 18-39, containing 5,541 valid signatures, is "sufficient." +5
