<br />sewer, and the area proposed to be assessed therefor--which area included
<br />certain lots in Block 2, Valley Park Addition and in Block 1, Jones' koll
<br />Addition. Manager Hyde told the audience that when Valley Park subdivision
<br />was originally platted there was a minimum amount of pipe put in the streets
<br />at a cost of $3,700; that the reason a complete job ~a7as not done at this time
<br />was that the Leslee Lane area had not yet been platted; that because of the
<br />small amount of construction done in 1953 by Valley Park developers the
<br />Valley Park and Jones Knoll area had not been included in the area proposed to
<br />be assessed for this present project; but that upon a re-survey by the Consulting
<br />Engineers it had been detdrmined that this area will benefit by construction of
<br />the presently proposed system.
<br />entire area set forth in the Notice of Hearing as the area proposed to be
<br />assessed, on the following basis:
<br />sewer, making a Total of $27,440.00 proposed to be assessed over an area of
<br />804,000 Sq. Ft'. A credit would be given to those properties partially benefited
<br />by the original construction, to the extent of $.00889 per square foot, making
<br />estimated assessable cost to these property owners of $.02523, with an estimated
<br />"cost of $.034 td the balance of the area. Nr. Freeman, owner of Lot 13 abutting
<br />Leslee Lane, told Council he believes that if Lot 12 is filled the line between
<br />-Lots 11 and 12 north of Leslee Lane can be deleted from the improvement.
<br />Minder of Suburban Engineering Company, Consulting Engineers, reported that this
<br />has been investigated; that in order to eliminate this stub.there should be fill
<br />in Lots 11, 12 and 13 abutting.Lesslee Lane and Lots 1, 2 and 4 abueting Saxony
<br />Road; that the home on Lot 11 has been. constructed in such a way that' the lot
<br />must be kept low br the house re-constructed. Mr. Ken Luce, owner of Lots 1, 2
<br />and 3 abutting Saxony Road, explained he is now filling Lot 1; that this cost
<br />will run to some $800. Mr. Minder estimated cost of stub at "about $l,OOQ", and
<br />Mr. Freeman withdrew his suggestion.. Mr.. Bruce Yund, owner of LOES 11 and 12
<br />abutting Eeslee Lane, repoxted he purchased his lots with grade as is; that he
<br />feels it would be unjust to require him to fill lots to provide drainage. for the
<br />area to the North., Mr. George O'Dowd, owner of Lot 4, south of Kaymak Drive,
<br />objected to the Valley Park's area being included at this time, and inquired as
<br />to what caused the re-kurvey. He was informed by Mr. Howard Lindow, 6001 Leslee

<br />across a vacant lot into Kaymar Drive; that this ponding-can be corrected by the
<br />proper grading requirements by the Village. Some discussion was had on this; and
<br />a gentleman who stated he.is the owner of all the now-vacant lots in Block 2,
<br />Valley Park, stated the lots will be graded to thQ rear, and if possible to Lot 2,
<br />but that he feels there is too much water from these thirteen lots in the block
<br />to be carried across Block 2 on the surface.
<br />Council approves a stub line south of Kaymar Drive, it should be on an easement
<br />between Lots 2 and 3; that such.a stub would cost between $1,200 and $1,500.
<br />Nessrs. Hartnett and Poboisk, owner of Lots 5 and 6, south of Kaymar Drive,
<br />objected to paying for any part of the system except that part into which their

<br />drainage from Lots 2 and 3 on Saxony Road runs west; does not run to this proposed
<br />system. Nr. Minder reported that survey shows that some of this water does drain
