<br />1. PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED STORM SEWER IN VJe70TH ST. FROM VEST SHORE DRIVE
<br />TO NINE-MILE CREEK; RABUN DRIVE FROM W.70TH ST. NORTHERLY TO ABERCROMBIE DRIVE: TH.
<br />IN ABERCROMBIE DRIVE TO CHURCH PLACE;- ACROSS PRIVATE PROPERTY, ALONG THE E. LINE OF
<br />LOT 7, BOCK 6, WOODHILL, FROM DUNBERRY LANE TO W.70TH ST. A map was shown of the
<br />route of the proposed sewer and the district proposed to be assessed therefor; and
<br />Estimate of Cost was read at $135,660, for $.0325 per square foot.
<br />was then turned over to Ab. Douglas Barr of Adolph Illeyer and Associates, consultng
<br />engineering firm, for answers to any questions from the audience.
<br />Mr. Reineking, 4725 Dunberry Lane, objected to the sewer's coming through his
<br />vacant property just down the road, which would serve as well,
<br />that he does believe a storm sewer is necessary, and does not object to the
<br />improvement. He was informed that before final plans are formalized he will be
<br />contacted by the Village for an easement; that it is possible to change the route
<br />in case he is unwilling to have this construction on his property.
<br />grades he feels the proposed storm sewer cannot take the water from his corner;
<br />that the water drains to his corner from four directions and the corner of his lot
<br />is flooded. ME. Barr stated that Andover Road is supposed to drain Westerly--that
<br />the street is not up to grade at present time; that an attempt will be made to re-
<br />grade Andover Road to secure proper drainage; that, should this not be possible,
<br />then the storm sewer should be extended to this corner--which would be about
<br />$10,000 over the present. estimated cost.
<br />differences have been found between accepted street grades and present street
<br />grades, where streets have not been blacktopped--that this comes from work done
<br />within the plat--the developers and builders either removing dirt from the street
<br />or putting dirt into the street from lot excavations.
<br />blacktopping contractor had told him one lot was below grade at this corner and
<br />he would leave dirt there; that, normally, it is the responsibility of the
<br />property owner to build his lot up to street grade--that Wooddale Avenue has been
<br />put to grade but Andover, East of Wooddale has not.
<br />Mr. Grzesik, 7025 Wooddale, asked if consideration had been given to taking
<br />the sewer off the low spot on 111.70th Street into West Shore Drive and then letting
<br />it drain by gravity to the pond,
<br />given to talcing sewer down Hest Shore Drive into Storm Sewer Main No. l--that this
<br />would be more expensive than the plan proposed here--that it would not be possible
<br />to stop the drainage- down West Shore Drive short of an outlet to Nine-Mile Creek.
<br />residents that he is required to furnish drainage on Church Place from Nine-klile
<br />Creel:, asked if residents would be bearing double storm sewer assessment..
<br />Kyde told him that the contractor's statement is not so--that the Village has
<br />purchased some pipe for storm sewer and will install by day labor should it be
<br />impossible to take bids in time to prevent delay of paving--that there is nothing
<br />in contract with regard to drainage,, except adjustment of manholes--which is
<br />usual in street improvement contracts.

<br />informed that the water along the North gutter draine into this sewer; along the
<br />South gutter it turns at Link Avenue and thus cannot be included in this project.
<br />Nr. Clark inquired as to what will happen to Nine-Mile Creek when the
<br />property around it is settled.
<br />requiring 100-foot dedications on both sides of creek from all new developers;
<br />and that the establishment of a "Nine-Mile Creek Watershed District'! is under way,
<br />for control of the creek from its sourceo
<br />Mr. Sandberg, 4505 Andover Road, inquired as to the comparison of this
<br />estimated cost with that of surrounding areas. He was told that in areas for
<br />which storm sewers have just recently been approved the costs range from $.0287
<br />to LO52 per square foot.
