<br />Tracy Ave,; th. S. in Tracy Ave. to Whiting St.; tho E, in Whiting St. to Valley
<br />View Rd.; th. SWly in Valley View Rd. to Antrim Rd.; th. S. in Antrim Rd. to 1q.70th
<br />St.; th. E. in W.70th St. to the E. side of the MN8S RR R/W, to connect with
<br />existing Trunk Main in W.70th St. T~bi&W@~ of Assessment was read as follows:
<br />Total Assessable Cost, $149,364.27, to be assessed against 86,551.2 Assessable
<br />Front Feet and 458.29 Acres of Unplatted Property, for a Proposed Assessment of
<br />$.78 per Front Foot for Platted Property (with a 150-front foot maximum on large
<br />lots which carry deed restrictions against subdivision) and $177.00 per Acre.
<br />Manager Hyde explained that this assessment is for the Trunk Main only; that, at
<br />such time as the properties abutting the Trunk Main connect thereto and thus
<br />receive Lateral Service therefrom, a connection charge (payable at time of
<br />connection) of $6.00 per front foot will be made. The Estimated Cost of the
<br />Improvement, given at the Improvement Hearing, was $.58 per Front Foot for platted
<br />property; $142.00 per Acre for Unplatted Property; $5.00 per front foot for lateral
<br />connection. Manager explained that addition in assessment is due to contract's
<br />running over estimate, and deletion from district of some properties which cannot
<br />be served. The only objection came from Mr. L.T. McNeis, 7539 Upton Avenue, who
<br />objected that the Lateral Connection charge had cost him a real estate sale.
<br />Beim's motion, approving assessment, was seconded by Tupa and carried. (See
<br />Resolution, later in meeting, Adopting and Confirming Assessment).
