<br />Manager Hyde read the Engineer's Estimates of $3.17 per Assessable Foot for the
<br />Blacktopping; $3.06 for the Curb and Gutter. Messrs. Hyde and Zikan explained
<br />that the Curb and Gutter down the slope is a necessity for the drainage; and the
<br />owners of the two lots to be assessed for curb and gutter protested paying the
<br />full cost, claiming that part of this cost should be assessed azs an integral
<br />part of the blacktopping project inasmuch as the curb and gutter will abut the
<br />only entrance to the street and is consequently of benefit to all owners on the
<br />street. Mr. V. H. Mathieu objected to such an arrangement, claiming that curb
<br />and gutter will soon go in on the balance of the street, and, if such plans are
<br />made, the two corner lots should be assessed for this construction. Some
<br />discussion was had as to a change in the present grade, taking some of the water
<br />to the railroad tracks.
<br />that.this would mean a change in plans.

<br />necessary for good blacktop construction all abutting properties benefit by
<br />the curb and gutter, moved for the scheduling of a new public hearing on
<br />Blacktopping, Curb and Gutter, with the understanding that the extent of the
<br />curb and gutter will not change but that all properties along Windsor Avenue
<br />between Hansen Road and the Railroad Tracks will be assessed therefor, said
