8/26/2019 11:04 AMCandidateSharonAnderson   Still Confused on Ballot Wording The ballot states: Should Ordinance ORD 18-39, entitled “Residential Coordinated Collection,” remain in effect for residential trash collection in St. Paul? Ordinance 18-39 creates new rules for the collection and disposal of trash and payment for trash service; and requires that certain residential dwellings have trash collected by a designated trash hauler. A ‘yes’ vote is a vote in favor of keeping Ordinance ORD 18-39. A ‘No’ vote is a vote to get rid of Ordinance 18-39.
RES PH 19-206 8/23/2019 7:37 AMCandidateSharonAnderson Against When Legal opinions are requested, before any Ratifying ***essmets are signed off by City Attorney and Mayor, Mitra former Clerk4 then Congressman Keith Ellison must know the state and federal Laws and must not act in Bad Faith such as this council did recent Trash Ballot https://mailchi.mp/48101a249efb/november-5-citizens-will-vote-on-citys-trash-plan?e=6b88bf099b Hoeschler letter must be acted on, Legal Opinions must be in writing for Public Scruinty. -2

RLH TA 19-282 5/22/2019 7:06 PMEric Lein Against ••ORD 18-39 was not effective until October 10, 2018. ••ORD 18-39 was “suspended in its operation” (per City Charter Sec. 8.05) when the City Council adopted Resolution 18-1922, “Finding the Petition for a referendum of ORD 18-39 is legally sufficient…” ••ORD 18-40 has been suspended since October 2018. Language in force says: “…This section shall not preclude a****ing property owners from cooperating for arranging for collection services from a licensed hauler, nor other arrangements for reasonable interruption of service.” ••The City and haulers have not complied with MN Stat. Chapter 443. Rates fail to take into account the character, kind & quality of service, of rubbish & method of disposition. Rates fail to take into account the number of people served. ••Charges and ***essments for 1, 2, 3 or 4 unnecessary empty trash carts exceed the benefits to the property and violate MN Stat. Chapter 429 and City Charter Chapter 14. ••Invalid Garbage Contract signed after deadline.
