<br />Morningside Courier on October 29 and November 5, 1959, of "Notice of Hearings"
<br />Mayor Pro Tem
<br />Affidavits of Publication in Edina-
<br />was submitted by Clerk, approved by Council and ordered placed on file; and,-
<br />pursuant to said Notice, the following Public Hearings were conducted, and action
<br />was taken as hereinafter recorded. Hearings were interrupted twice for other
<br />business of the evening, but are recorded in sequence for purposes of continuity
<br />of record.
<br />HEARING ON SANITARY SEWER IMPROVEMENT NO. 159, PURSUANT TO HIGH BIDS. Manager
<br />Hyde explained to the audience that the present high water table has caused bidders
<br />on this proposed project to bid much higher than was estimated by the Village
<br />Engineer; that, consequently the Council has called this supplemental Hearing on
<br />the already-approved project to give affecteaproperty owners the opportungty of
<br />deciding whether they still wish the improvement at the new and higher price.
<br />The new estimate, computed on basis of low bid for June 15, 1960 completion, is
<br />$1,495.17 per honnection, as compared with the former estimate of $1,285.52.
<br />Ray Hedelson, 6001 Tracy Avenue, presented objecting petition by owners of a
<br />majority of the properties in the block between Highlands Road and W.59th St.
<br />stated that these persons are aware that the sewer will probably go in eventually,
<br />that it may be still more expensive when it is constructed in the future, but
<br />that they are willing to take that chance to be relieved of special assessment
<br />for three or four years4 Mrs. A.C. Trapp, 6005 Tracy Ave., told Council she did
<br />not sign this petition because her family is having cesspool troubles and wants
<br />the sewer as soon as possible.
<br />requested that this small street be eliminated from the proposed improvement.
<br />Manager Hyde told audience that the Village wants to surface Tracy Avenue in 1960,
<br />with-aid from Gas Tax funds; that surfacing should not be done until underground
<br />improvements are in.
<br />6320 Valley View Road, and others, spoke favorably on the project, the first two
<br />citing their urgent need for sewer servicek
<br />registered at the Hearing, and none had been received prior thereto.
<br />Engineer was queried as to underground improvements in Tracy Avenue, stating that
<br />a crossing may be necessary to serve Lyle Otto's addition (which may be taken for
<br />Highway No. 169) but that no additional utilities will be needed parallel to the
<br />street. It was explained that completion of construction of project by January 1,
<br />1960 would add some $16,000 to the total assessment. Some discussion was had by
<br />the Council, and Trustee Beim, stating he feels that Tracy Avenue should be
<br />included in the project to facilitate surfacing in 1960, that Crest Lane objectors
<br />do not represent all owners on the street and that, therefore, this street should
<br />also be included, moved for re-approval of SANITARY SEWER IMPROVEMENT NO. 159 in
<br />its entirety, and for award of contract for project to low bidder, Barbarossa &
<br />Sons, Inc., on the basis of June 15, 1960 completion, at $228,014.10.
<br />seconded by Tupa, Rollcall vote was taken, being Beim, aye; Kohler, aye; Tupa, aye;
<br />and Dickson, aye; and the motion was unanimously carried.
<br />DRIVE TO 330 FT. WEST.
<br />at $6,129.60, for $1,532.40 per lot for the four lots proposed to be assessed.
<br />Hyde explained that the bid received this morning is somewhat lower than the estimate,
<br />that the assessable cost will*be lower than estimate also.
<br />registered at the Hearing, and Mr. Heegard requested that award of contract be-made
<br />on the basis of the December 31, 1959 completion date.
