<br />Manager Hyde explained that althcugh
<br />the petition filed was for the improvement between M.66th and W.70th St., there
<br />is a chance that a storm sevier will be constructed, this yeax, south of Y.6Eth
<br />Street, that if this storm sewer is installed it will probably not be until
<br />late in the summer, and for that reason this improvement has been planned to
<br />68th street only. C. J. Royce, 6808 Cornelia Drive, asketi that the
<br />blacktopping be delayed until curb and gutter is constructed; and it%. Hyde
<br />told audience that curb and gutter construction this year would do tao things--
<br />vrould reduce the cost of blacktopping, and would allow assessment for both
<br />projects over a ten-year period. 1.k. c. D. Rademacher, 6620 Cornelia Drive,
<br />told Council that vhen blacktopping petition was circulated he polled the
<br />people between :?.46Ph and yi.68th Streets concerning curb and gutter; that none
<br />of them was interested, although he is in favor of it. Kr. Jerry Remole, 6621
<br />Cornelia Drive, stated that he, too, wcruld like curb and gutter.

<br />4701 I'J.70th Street, 7007 and 7120 West Shore Drive, stated these property owners
<br />are basically against blacktopping at this time, being assessed for side footage;
<br />that they believe it is impossible to stop Uest Shore Traffic to the south, at this
<br />Lime; that it vJould be better to wait until the south area is developed.
<br />E.C.Skinner, 4701 ':1,70th Street reiterated these sentiments. Trustee Kohler

<br />assessment hearing. Lir. Larry Thorp, 7000 Ylest Shore Drive, stated he feels

<br />asked as to cost, and ;k. Dickson told audience that costs have increased each
<br />year for five years; that, if improvement is delayed another year costs will
