Trash bag protest grabs Saint Paul City Hall’s attention

Upset over an unsightly trash heap at Tenth and Wabasha, Saint Paul residents over the weekend left bags of trash outside Saint Paul’s City Hall in protest.

Julio Ojeda-Zapata of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

The state of Minnesota is responsible for the parcel, which had become a littered eyesore because of homeless people camping there. Even so, the city should have nudged this process along in tandem with state officials, according to Ricardo Cervantes, the city director of safety and inspections.

The trash pile became a cause célèbre over the weekend as Erich Mische, a city resident, rallied a small group of adults and kids to get most of the junk cleared off the parcel in a few hours.
