STORM SEWER IMPROVEMENT 103 SPECIAL ASSESSMENT LEVIED, (N.W.

Mr. Hyde also advised that <br />letters protesting the method of the proposed assessment had been received from Mr. <br />G. 0. Falkenborg, 313 Griffit Street, and Mr. Joe Hlavka, 300 Van Buren Avenue. <br />Mayor Bredesen advised that because of the substantial increase in the values of <br />the extraordinarily specially benefited lots, he believes that the proposed method <br />of assessment is the honest and fair way to spread the assessment. Mr. E. M. <br />Carroll, 6221 Maloney Avenue, advised that because of a malfunction of the pump, <br />the pond'on his property is not maintained at a proper level and the value of his <br />property has, therefore, depreciated. In reply to a question of Mr. Richard Schulze, <br />6312 Waterman Avenue, Mr. Hite explained the three categories of extraordinary spec- <br />ial benefit. <br />structure on the property would be damaged by flooding. <br />properties in whdch a portion of the lot was subject to frequent flooding. Category <br />3 would normally be a neighborhood situation subject to frequent back yard flooding. <br />Category 2 is considered to be improved at one-half the rate of Category 1, and <br />Category 3 is considered to be improved at one-half of Category 2. <br />were determined on a basis of ''before and af.terl' dollar sales in three different <br />situations in the area. In reply to Mr. Schulze's question if this policy had <br />ever been used before in the Village, Mr. Hite advised that there has never been <br />&situation like this, since other areas were considered more uniform in benefit, <br />and thus the assessment was uniform, although that in many instances "back yard" <br />pipe extensions had been assessed separately against the adjacent lots. Mr. Hite <br />advised that one lot had increased $5,000 since the installation of the storm <br />sewer and pointed out that the decision as to the special benefit was a judgment <br />decision, made by trained assessors. Mr. Robert Kilian, 409 Jefferson Street, <br />advised that his lot is almost level in comparison with his neighbors' and ques- <br />tioned his assessment. Councilman Johnson noted that because Mr. Killan's lot <br />was filled, 403 and.405 Jefferson were subject to more flooding. <br />Mr, Kilian that his property should be in Category 3 rather than Category 2. <br />Kilian spoke also for Mr. Janis Lielkoka, 403 Jefferson, advising that Mr. Lielkoks <br />had a garden which was benefited by surface water and that he did not consider his <br />property benefited by the storm sewer. Mr. Hite recalled that this storm sewer had <br />been installed so homes in this area would not be flooded as they were in February, <br />1966, <br />involved are being extraordinarily specially assessed and that the rest of the area <br />will be assessed at only the uniform rate. <br />He noted further that Council had made an inspection of the specially <br />Total <br />Mr. Hyde advised that <br />Assessment is proposed to be spread over twenty <br />I basis without special benefit as they had been led to believe at the Improvement <br />Mr. Hyde read a letter from an attorney representing nine property owners, <br />He advised that Category 1 was assigned to properties on which a <br />Category 2 was assigned to <br />Dollar values <br />I <br />Mr. Hite advised <br />Mr. <br />He pointed out that it should be remembered that only'7% of the properties <br />Mr. Bruce Mathewson, 6308 Waterman
