<br />assessment for Sanitary Sewer Imp-ovement No. 37, explaining that he has been assessed
<br />for 155 Fiont Feet, whereas several of his-neighbors have equal or larger front
<br />footziges .and have been assessed for less. It was explained to Sir. Franke that one
<br />owner obtained assessment relief because he.dedicated a storm drainage easement to
<br />the Village; that the owner directly across the street (with a triangular-shaped
<br />lot) was assessed fior frontage on one street, only. Franke still maintained
<br />that his assessment is unfair; and, after some discussion-on the problems of -re-=
<br />assessment, etc., Bredesen moved that surplus obtained from difference in assess-
<br />ment rate as against bond interest rate be applied again& I&. Frankels assessment

<br />because he has direct access to Vzlley View Road; whereas Ryan Avenue will allow

<br />that s0met-g could probably be worked out wtth Xessrs, Ettner and Wing; and Mr.
<br />Allivato stated he vdfl be willing to give an easement for right-of-y<ay to the
