<br />PUBLIC HEARINGS ON PROPOSED STREET IMPROVEMENTS.
<br />Publication in Edina-Morningside Courier April 13 and 20, 1961, of "Notice of
<br />Public Hearings on Watermain, Concrete Curb and Gutter, and Permanent Street
<br />Surfacing and Curb", and reported the mailing of notices of hearings on these
<br />proposed improvements to affected property owners. Affidavit was approved as
<br />to form, and pursuant to said Notice, the following Public Hearings were
<br />conducted, and action taken as hereinafter reported.
<br />that, to secure the best possible bids on the projects proposed, the Village has
<br />combined the streets proposed to -be improved into two groups, based generally on
<br />types of soil and amounts of excavation and fill needed to prepare streets for
<br />surfacing. He told the group that the Council will not decide tonight the
<br />type of improvement to be installed; that, on June 12, bids will be received on
<br />two types of surfacing - 1. Bituminous Surface Treatment with Concrete Curb
<br />and Gutter; and - 2. Concrete Paving with Integral Curb; that, at that time,
<br />the Council will make its decision between the two on the basis of relative
<br />costs. In this latter connection, Mr. Hyde reported that the Village will pay
<br />ten percent of the cost of the proposed Concrete Paving, should the decision be
<br />for this type of surfacing, because Council feels maintenance costs are at least
<br />ten percent less than with the Bituminous Surface Treatment.

<br />Surfacing and Curbing in the group of streets designated on the Agenda for this
<br />Meeting as "Group If'.

<br />1 through 12 below is considered a separate street improvement and bids are
<br />taken separately for each; together with an Estimate of

<br />Surface Treatment with Concrete Curb and Gutter, or $222,143.48, or $7.68 per
<br />Assessable Foot for Concrete Pavement with Integral Curb.

<br />Munore, 4805 Aspasia Lane, asked if contract will include connection with private
<br />driveways. Manager Hyde told him that contract will include only pavement to the
<br />curb line, and radius return; that this leaves a gap of some eight to ten feet,
<br />which is the responsibility of the property owner. Asked if the Village could
<br />negotiate this work, Mr. Hyde stated that the Village can get a price from the
<br />contractor but does not want this as part of the contract.

<br />Mr. E. C. Stow objected to surfacing, now, while there are many lots in the
<br />area still unimproved. Manager Hyde told Council that, because of a contract
<br />with the developers--which requires street surfacing by the developers within
<br />two years of installation of sewer and water--he would suggest that this proposed
<br />project be elimiqated from "Group 1" until such time as negotiations are
<br />concluded with the developer. He told Council Hearing had been initiated
<br />pursuant to requests from property owners. for the improvement. Mr. J. H.
<br />Thompson, 4813 Hibiscus, told Council that he and his neighbors have paid a
<br />$600 deposit for street surfacing; that they want the work done. Mr. Stow
<br />told Council that he is still owner of more than 51% of the property.
<br />motion eliminating this proposed improvement from "Group I" pending negotiations
<br />with developers for its inclusion, was seconded by VanValkenburg and carried.
