Ord 19-18 5/8/2019 9:02 PMEric Lein   ORD 19-18 Withdrawn. DSI to work with City Attorney's office to revise proposed language for later consideration by the Charter Commission. Thank you, councilmembers, for listening. +2
Ord 19-18 5/8/2019 3:44 PMAlisa Lein Against In short, please listen to the people of St. Paul. Vote No. Unintended consequences are a big deal. If DSI needs more tools in their toolbox, I understand that, but don't have it be a blank check for anything and everything under DSI. If Animal control is causing many issues, look at Animal Control, but don't put full authority over everything without properly engaging the community on the exact details. Organized Trash details were not disclosed to the public and look where we are today with that mess. +2
Ord 19-18 5/8/2019 2:14 PMWard Nichols Against This ordinance came about after the opposition to the trash program, which isn't working. There is a pending court case on that program and a petition is also being circulated opposing Ordinance 19-18 as well. Perhaps the City Council should start listening to their constituents and s**** this new ordinance and allow a vote this fall on the trash program. If the trash program remains, there need to be changes including an opt-out and holding the haulers responsible for missed pickups through credits etc. Property owners that use their duplex as their personal single family dwelling do not need two garbage carts or two recycling carts and shouldn't be charged extra. +2
Ord 19-18 5/6/2019 7:42 PMJohn Purdy Against Travis, Deputy Director used as an example for the need to institute Administrative Citations: "peeling paint", a "serious, cosmetic offense". Travis said that he has issued literally "hundreds" of these citations when he worked in another city. Where was this, Gotham City? +2
Ord 19-18 4/23/2019 3:53 PMColleen Halpine Against This expansion of full power and authority to issue fines sets up new problems for citizens in dealing with the bureaucracy. The Mayor's office is supporting a study on fines so I can't understand why this new expanded penalty power is being pursued so quickly before the study results are public. I can only ***ume it is so the public won't have a chance to understand and discuss the pros and cons before the City Council votes. Charter changes should be voted on by the citizens on the ballot. My late husband, State Senator Don Moe, was not afraid of many things in his life but he was afraid of the extensive power of the DSI inspectors. He did everything he could to comply with all housing codes. Adding more types of fines for every little infraction, will further drive up housing costs. I am against this impulsive move by the City Council. +6
Ord 19-18 4/18/2019 7:45 PMHeather Rowe Against The city council members and Mr. Cervantes aren't being honest with us. They state they don't want to criminalize people who are in violation of ordinances, yet only 100 criminal citations are issued yearly. That doesn't seem to be enough to justify changing the city's charter. They state they want to protect citizens from criminal penalties as it would make it harder to obtain rentals, etc. What they don't say is that if a civil penalty isn't paid, the city would obtain a civil judgement and collection order against the person. This would affect the person's credit rating and renting ability much more than a petty misdemeanor would. They state the only option they have now for ordinance violators is criminal penalties or do nothing, which is a lie. The have the ability to issue summary abatement and special ***essments against ordinance violators. Don't listen to these liars. Each one who votes for this charter amendment needs to be voted out of office this November. +6
Ord 19-18 4/17/2019 10:14 PMMeredith Gillies Against Previously, I paid $33/quarter, taxes included, for trash. I now pay almost $90/quarter for service of a lesser quality. That's a difference of over $60 per quarter, and over $100 a year! If I had that much extra money in my budget, I wouldn't live in Frogtown. My home has already been invaded once, on the anniversary of my father's death, and they took everything I had of value and trashed the interior of my house. Years later, I haven't recovered emotionally or financially. I already work three jobs: one FT and two PT. The only reason I'm not at the meeting today is I'm at work and couldn't get my boss to approve the time off. I own my property and fix it up to the best of my ability on my limited budget. Imposing more penalties just encourages me to sell to HousingHub, let them bring in renters and not owners, and get out of town. +6
Ord 19-18 4/17/2019 6:54 PMMary Leonard Against To further penalize individuals beyond late fees is an abuse of power. The majority of the people that are not paying are senior citizens who cannot afford the new and more expensive service. This is very bad PR for the city. It is time that our city and society show more kindness to their fellow human beings. Someday everyone on the council will know the affects of additional fees when they are on a fixed income. It is time the council think of real solutions, not penalties. Admit the error. Take the example of the Community Action Programs that help with energy bills. +6

Ord 19-18 4/17/2019 8:17 AMTimothy Frankland Against This ordinance to expand the powers of the City Council leaves much to be desired. It states (Section 1, Subdivision 2) that the new proposed process for imposing civil penalties must provide for an opportunity to be heard by a neutral party, but the ordinance completely fails to elaborate beyond that. It fails to explain the proposed process for appeal or argument before a neutral party, it fails to explain how the neutral party should be selected, and it fails to state the time frame for such appeal. These are critical details that should be clearly spelled out in this ordinance, not just left for clarification at a later date. If the City Council wants to expand its powers in connection with the imposition of civil penalties, it should thoroughly explain the argument or appeal process to its residents now as part of this ordinance. As currently written, this ordinance should be voted down. +7
Ord 19-18 4/16/2019 10:27 PMKen Rowe Against The city building official has been caught by the State licensing authority trying to enforce fire codes. His licensing authority has warned him regarding his violation of the MN Statutes, now the city council wants to have the authority to allow their building official to issue fines. St. Paul DSI currently holds more power than the police department yet have limited training and act at the will of the council members. There is no way they should have the authority to issue fines. +7

Ord 19-18 4/5/2019 5:20 PM    Yet again Amy Brendmoen moves forward with an ordinance making it harder and more expensive for St. Paul residents to stay in their homes. Instead of admitting that the entire trash program has been a failure, she and her council cronies instead push forward with forcing residents to pay more. This ordinance shows just how out of touch Amy Brendmoen is with the wants and needs of her constituents and the greater St. Paul residency.

Ord 19-27 3/29/2019 5:19 PMAnne Thom   Please, no more stuff on the sidewalks to make it difficult and dangerous for pedestrians. The city now lets bicyclists and scooter riders here to nearly flatten those of us who choose to go around town on foot. These sandwich boards take up space that is really meant for pedestrian traffic. I can find no data to show sandwich boards increase revenues as an effective marketing tool. Commercial properties have windows to place signs in to entice customers into the business.They can choose to use that or some other advertising mechanism. My choice as a pedestrian is to jump over a sign, halt my walk in waiting for other traffic to p*** and go around, walk in the street or on the boulevard, or otherwise have to get out of the way. Sidewalks are constructed with my tax money in order for me to navigate this city. Businesses have other, more effective means to advertise. Don't remove pedestrian space. We are already weary of the bikes, scooters and double-wide strollers running into us. +1 -1
Ord 19-16 3/29/2019 2:42 AMPeter Butler Against The proposed 8.03 text will effectively reject the signatures of St. Paul residents who move frequently, have not voted within the last four elections, refuse to give their birth year, or change names due to marriage or divorce but do not update their registration record. People who transpose their address on a petition, do not use their full legal name (included hyphenated last names) or provide the wrong birth year will have their signatures rejected. Such strict requirements disenfranchise low-income people and minorities. +6
