<br />PUBLIC HEARINGS ON PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS.
<br />April 7 and 14, 1960, in Edina-Morningside Courier, of "Notice of Public Hearings on
<br />Bituminous Surface Treatment, Grading and Graveling, Sanitary Sewer and Watermain
<br />Improvements'1. Affidavit was approved as to form and ordered placed on file; and,
<br />pursuant to Notice, the following Public Hearings were conducted, and action was
<br />taken as hereinafter recorded.
<br />1. PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF 8ITUMINOUS SURFACE TREATMENT
<br />IN W.49TH ST., WESTBROOK LANE TO PUJGJANA LANE,
<br />per assessable foot, being revised from the $4.96 originally estimated, because of
<br />bids taken yesterday on this same type of work. Mr. Robert Soelberg, 5105 N.49th St.,
<br />asked about aid from the General Fund in surfacing Pulwana Lane, and W.49th St.
<br />from Pukwana Lane across tracks to Brookside; and on the East end of block, from
<br />I.7estbrookc Lane to Highway No. 169 service drive.
<br />surfacing of this one black, in the middle of two unsurfaced entrances, is not
<br />good planning, and reminded Council that general fund aid has been had in other
<br />circumstances. Mayor Bredesen told him that general fund moneys have been used
<br />on streets of specially heavy traffic; that it is his opinion that the traffic,
<br />at this point, will not be sufficient to warrant anything but an assessment
<br />project. Mr. and Mrs. John Anderson, 4840 Westbrook Lane, protestea the petition
<br />for this short street, but stated they are in favor of oil. Mr. Jarnberg of the
<br />Brltmore Apartments asked for permanent surfacing, and Mr. T.D. McKenznie requested
<br />surfacing all the way to Brookside Avenue. Mr. Soelberg told Council he would be
<br />in favor of both curb and gutter and blacktop all the way, but there was no other
<br />evidence of interest in curb and gutter. It was suggested by Manager Hyde that
<br />one compromise might be to permanently surface that portion of the street
<br />petitioned for, and to oil both entrances with a'-heavy coat of oil. Some
<br />suggestion was made that the railroad company be assessed for surfacing of the
<br />portion over the tracks, but it was thought it would be difficult to prove
<br />benefit. By common consent of Council Public Hearing was continued to Monday,
<br />May 9, for investigation

<br />of Cost, as originally given in notice to property owners, 17as revised from $4.23
<br />per assessable foot to $3.91. There were no objections to the proposed improvement

<br />meeting, ordering improvement).
<br />3. PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF BITUMINOUS SURFACE TREATMENT
<br />IN &IAN< TERRACE uKIVJ3 FROM VALLEY VIEW ROAD, TO AND INCLUDING TURN-AROUND. Estimate
<br />of Cost, $4.59 per assessable foot, was revised to $4.04. Mr. R. F. Beedee, bY20,
<br />asked for a temporary improvemznt, rather than permanent surfacing.
<br />Council that the turn-around easement abutting his property is only a temporary
<br />one; that when the 25-acre tract directly to the south is platted, Mark Terrace
<br />Drive will be the entrance to it and the turn-around will be abandoned; that, if
<br />turn-around is blacktopped, now, he and his neighbor across the street will be
<br />forced to dig up the blacktopping upon abandonment of easement.
<br />that there is neither sewer nor water in the street; that, while it would seem to
<br />be some time before sewer will be available the water trunk is not very far away
<br />right now. That, too, without curb and gutter, the south end of the roadway will
<br />be washed away. Mr. Beedee asked that, if this improvement should be approved
<br />over his objections, the turn-around be kept to as narrow a radius as possible.
<br />To Mr, Zitan's reply, that Village maintenance equipment must use the turn-around,
<br />he told Council that his driveway could be used by Village crews, thus eliminating
<br />necessity of large radius. Mr. C.E. Edstrom,#6913, stated he does not feel that
<br />this is the time for permanent surfacing, but that he would like to see some dust
<br />coating. Inquiries were made to Engineer Zikan about Curb and Gutter, and he told
<br />the group that it is not needed, because the water is carried away to the south;
<br />however, there seemed to be some considerable sentiment for it, and, upon a show-
<br />of-hands vote there were eight for curb and gutter and one against.
<br />motion approving Bituminous Surface project was seconded by Beim and unanimously
<br />carried. (See Resolution of later in evening, ordering improvement). Kohler then
<br />moved scheduling Public Hearing for Monday, May 9, on proposed construction of
<br />concrete Motion seconded by Beim and carried.
<br />There v7as some question as to drainage at Valley View Road--installation of a culvert.
<br />Mr. Zikan told group that because Valley View is a County Road, permission must be
<br />received from the County before a culvert could be installed; that such permission
<br />is questionable.
