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
RES 21-1646 11/25/2021 4:36 PM  For Which of three possibilities shown in the text of this resolution is the real name for this new committee? (1) Legislative Advisory Committee on Garbage; (2) Garbage Advisory Committee; (3) Ad Hoc Garbage Advisory Group. +2
RES 21-1646 11/24/2021 7:26 PMBruce Clark   I can only hope that these folk direct the negotiators dealing with the Council and the Hauler's Consortium to correct the egregious errors in the original collection agreement. *** Allow neighbors to share carts *** Following cities like Maplewood and Bloomington, allow "zero-wasters" who have always recycled, composted their own garbage, and hauled their small amounts of trash to transfer stations to pay a small one-time fee to opt-out of both the residential service, and the fees imposed by both St. Paul and Ramsey County for this service they never needed, nor wanted. +8
