Manager Hyde <br />reviewed for the audience the reasons for this Hearing on a storm sewer project <br />approved in August, 1959, as "Storm Sewer Improvement No, 50" (Lateral No. 8 of <br />Storm sewer Main No. 1). <br />in 1959 are of sufficient extent to require a new public hearing; that, since the <br />1959 Public Hearing, the State has taken certain lands which were to have been <br />assessed (thus decreasing the amount of square footage available for assessment), <br />that contractors' unit prices are up because of the amount of construction work <br />available for contractors this year, and that contractors are bidding higher on <br />work in easements through private propprty than they ordinarily bid on regular <br />street work; that, for theserreasons, bids taken this morning are above the Estimate <br />of Cost of $.0637 per Square Foot given in the mailed notice of this hearing; that <br />the costs, based on bids taken today, would be $.0733 per Square Foot on the <br />Alternate Project (which involves smaller pipe than the originally designed project) <br />and $.0788 per Square Foot on the Base Project. Mr. Hyde reported that there are <br />possibilities of saving some of this cost: <br />year, in time for assessment, approximately $9,000 in Capitalized Interest can be <br />deleted: 2. If proper easements can be secured, so that contractor can eliminate <br />(a) moving a sanitary sewer manhole at +I6321 Tingdale, and (b) tunneling under a <br />large oak tree at 6324 Wilryan, about $7,500 in Construction Cost can.be saved. <br />Mr. B. Weekley, 6308 Tingdale, stated he feels measurements given contractor with <br />regard to location of manhole are incorrect; and Mr. Zikan was instructed to re- <br />check . Mr. J. R. Swenson, 6425 Ryan Avenue, protesting that the proposed impwve- <br />ment will cost him some $1,000, plus interest, asked for an explanation of the plan; <br />and Consulting Engineer Douglas Barr explained it in detail, telling audience that <br />many plans have been made; that the present plan is the most economical. Mrs. <br />George Vanasek, 6424 Sherwood Avenue, stating that property owners east of the <br />Highway are not bothered by storm waters, asked whey they should be required to <br />pay for a sewer to drain the property west of Highway #loo. <br />6301 Warren Avenue, complained that there was a water hole in front of his garage, <br />on W.63rd St., and asked if the proposed storm sewer would correct. <br />informed that street must be graded to correct this condition, providing Highway <br />did not take careoof it; that grading cost is not in storm sewer cost. Mr. T. G. <br />Bergh, 6417 Ryan Ave., ws also appraised of this fact. Mr. Richard Dols, 6308 <br />Mildred Avenue, approved of project.
