I am a manager in the Public Works Department, and I oversee the City's assessment activities. I was asked to respond to your recent question regarding the nuisance abatement assessments on 697 Surrey Avenue in Saint Paul.
Our records indicate the property owners are James R. Anderson and Lyle Rambo. All assessment notices have been sent to these names at the 697 Surrey Ave address.
The first assessment (Proj. no. J0707A, Assessment no. 8337) was approved by the City Council at its public hearing on July 5th. Notice of that hearing was sent to the property owner on 6/1/07. The assessment was for costs incurred by the City on 4/24/07 to "Remove pile of refuse from rear yard and refuse from camper trailer." The total assessment amount was $420.00, broken down as follows: garbage abatement fee for 1 hour of time ($260), general refuse fee for removal of 2.5 cubic yards of material ($70), mattress fee for two mattresses ($20), DSI/code enforcement admin fee ($50), PW/assessments admin fee ($20).
The second assessment (Proj. no. J0708A, Assessment no. 8350) has not yet been approved by the City Council. A public hearing notice for ratification of the assessment was mailed on 6/22/07. That notice announced both a legislative hearing (with a city staff member) on July 10th, and a City Council public hearing coming up on August 1st. The assessment was for costs incurred by the City on 5/16/07 to "Remove camper from rear yard." The total assessment amount will be $460.00, broken down as follows: garbage abatement fee for 1.5 hours of time ($390), DSI/code enforcement admin fee ($50), PW/assessments admin fee ($20).
I hope this provides the information you need. If you have any further questions, feel free to reply to this email message or call our assessments section at 651-266-8858.

Adopted in 1791 as part of the Bill of Rights, the Eighth Amendment was inspired by language from the English Bill of Rights (1689). It declares: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” These three clauses provide the only substantive federal constitutional limits on the severity of permissible sanctions in criminal justice.
The Court has done little to interpret “excessive fines,” declaring that it would overrule a lower court only if the fine was “so grossly excessive as to amount to a deprivation of property without due process of law” (Waters‐Pierce Oil Co. v. Texas (No. 1), 1909, p. 86).
