RES 21-1575 12/1/2021 6:29 PMRachel Brawley   I live on grand and have no qualms with a business staying open until 2 AM. The bar is now under new ownership and shouldn't face the consqeuneces of the previous owner's poor oversight and leadership. +1
RES 21-1575 12/1/2021 6:24 PMAlex Krug For As a resident on Grand Ave I have no issue with bars staying open until 2 AM. There has been an uptick in car thefts since bars have been closing earlier. With bars staying open until 2 am and possibly more people on the street at that time, it could keep eyes on the street and lessen the chance of car theft. Also, the new owners shouldn't be punished for an event that happened under different ownership. +1
Ord 21-42 11/18/2021 10:13 PMEric Lein -- #4 -- Regarding PW Fixed Costs Response   EXAMPLE: A single-family household that wants a second cart pays FAR less for two carts than a duplex pays for two carts. The single family pays lower hauler fees and just one City administrative fee. The single family's 2-cart price advantage reflects the fact that fixed costs for a second, third or fourth cart are negligible. This No-Sharing Penalty has thousands of multi-family households subsidizing single-family households while over-paying haulers for non-existent fixed costs. +1
Ord 21-42 11/10/2021 8:40 AMEric Lein -- #3 Against AS CURRENTLY ADOPTED FOR 2021 and PROPOSED FOR 2022: Households that produce MORE Trash are rewarded with LOW per-gallon fees. Households that produce LESS Trash are penalized with HIGH per-gallon fees. ///--||--\\\ REALLOCATION RESULTS: Grand Total Fees to be paid by households to haulers for each cart size (including collection, disposal, billing, bulkies, county tax, state tax) will be -- (1) 35-Gal EOW @ $11.53/month [savings vs proposed rate = $8.24/mo]; (2) 35-Gal Weekly @ $18.49/month [savings = $4.78/mo]; (3) 64-Gal Weekly @ $30.95/month [savings = $1.24/mo]; (4) 96-Gal Weekly @ $43.68/month [added cost = $8.07/mo]. /// Please protect consumers and the environment via an EQUITABLE GARBAGE PROGRAM that encourages and rewards conservation of natural resources. /// Again, please refer to my E-MAIL and its ATTACHED FILE that shows detailed calculations. +7
Ord 21-42 11/10/2021 8:17 AMEric Lein -- #2 Against Please adopt "Sec 220.05(a) Base Level Fees" that are substantially equivalent to the "Reallocated Fees" shown here: (1) 35-Gallon EOW @ $8.37; (2) 35-Gal, Weekly @ $13.42; (3) 64-Gal, Weekly @ $22.47; (4) 96-Gal, Weekly @ $31.71. /// This schedule of Reallocated Fees charges all customers equally on a per-gallon basis. For example: LOW Wasters pay $5.56 per Month per 1,000 gallons annual capacity; HIGH Wasters pay $5.56 per Month per 1,000 gallons annual capacity. /// Haulers will collect the same total revenue with Proposed or Reallocated fees -- $25,952,978 per year. /// Haulers' bottom line will not be affected unless thousands of customers reduce their garbage volume (supposedly a good thing) and switch to smaller carts. /// Instead of perpetuating disincentives, thank you for enacting incentives that will work to protect the environment. /// PLEASE SEE MY E-MAILED TESTIMONY and its ATTACHED .PDF FILE with two pages of fine print and many detailed calculations. +11 2
Ord 21-42 11/10/2021 8:04 AMEric Lein -- #1 Against The fee schedule is not equitable, and flies in the face of City Ordinance Sec. 357.05 that requires trash prices to be “in proportion to the amount or weight of mixed municipal solid waste collected and shall differ significantly and incrementally one from another.” The City’s Organized Trash Collection Program does not meet this requirement. /// Households that produce MORE trash are rewarded with LOW per-gallon fees. /// Households that produce LESS trash are penalized with HIGH per-gallon fees. /// For example: (a) LOW Wasters pay: $12.13 per Month per 1,000 gallons annual capacity [Small cart; EOW]; and HIGH Wasters pay: $4.38 per Month per 1,000 gallons annual capacity [Large cart; Weekly] /// High-trash-volume customers are subsidized by excessive fees charged to lower-waste and zero-waste customers. /// St. Paul's existing fee structure works against city, state and national efforts to REDUCE trash volume. +6 -1
