RLH AR 19-47 5/22/2019 3:34 PMDavid Thom Against I believe the council should dismiss all ***essments related to the city wide garbage. The council admits there are sufficient signature to put the police to referendum.

Again, I urge you to dismiss all garbage bill ***essments.

RLH TA 19-271 5/22/2019 2:17 PMMarguerite DeSpain  Against Critical concerns of citizens were reported in hearings and are not being shared with you, as there are many thousands of concerned citizens that are protesting this garbage program and see it as directly opposed to the environmental climate improvement plan with it's refusal to allow for neighbor-sharing and opting out when a bin is not necessary. The current garbage program implementation and fines is motivating more waste and not less. The way the City has chosen to implement organized trash collection has harmed many citizens, which these ***essments prove. It has also caused multiple small family garbage collectors to go out of business, gradually creating a new monopoly - Waste Management. Instead of responsibly preventing these harms when concerns were raised, Council members have stifled their concerns, acting as if helpless instead of insisting that there be negotiations and necessary changes made. We citizens of St. Paul are not represented by your silence. +4
RLH TA 19-271 5/22/2019 1:54 PMMarguerite DeSpain  Against I protest the ***essment to my property, as I participate in the trash program as a neighbor-sharer, as I have for more than twelve years, with a single adult household across the street. I choose to reduce my waste substantially both for the sake of the earth and our City and to save money. I have very little waste, as I eat mostly vegetables and eggs, and can easily compost their waste. If I have any waste that cannot be recycled or composted, such as packaging, I pay the neighbor to add a very small bag once in a while. We have harmoniously done this for many years, reducing the costs to us both. The City has refused to honor or acknowledge and follow my request to not have a bin, to pick up its bin left on my property without my permission, and is billing me for a service I did not request or ever use, which I see as unjust and oppressive. I offered to serve on a committee of citizens to add neighbor share to implementation, and help, with no response. Please stop this. +3
RLH AR 19-47 5/21/2019 9:41 AMEric Lein Against • ORD 18-39 (Chapter 220) was “suspended in its operation” (per City Charter Sec. 8.05) when the City Council adopted Resolution 18-1922 on November 14, 2018, “Finding the Petition for a referendum of ORD 18-39 is legally sufficient but that the subject matter is not appropriate to submit to the electorate.” No trash bills are owed at this time in light of the properly-submitted and legally sufficient Petition.
