RLH AR 19-49 5/22/2019 3:36 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. Future more there is a question if a contract has even been legally executed between the city and the garbage consortium as I stated to each and every council member in my email dated May 18, 2019 to witch not one of the council members has even bother to acknowledge receipt. Again, I urge you to dismiss all garbage bill ***essments.

RLH AR 19-49 5/21/2019 9:42 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. The city must legislate in good faith and carry out its obligations under the Charter. The ordinance must be suspended and submitted to a referendum, or repealed by the Council. Petitioners filed a lawsuit in district court on February 7, 2019. All collection activities and pending azzessments must be put on hold and/or laid over until: • • The lawsuit, Clark vs. City of St. Paul, is decided; and • • Ord 18-39 is approved by voters in a referendum. +3 1
