<br />Paving-Curb Estimate, $10.29 per assessable foot; as the Bituminous Surface-Concrgte
<br />Curb Estimate, $11.87; then amended Estimates on the basis of bids taken today, to

<br />PUBLIC HEARIXG ON PROPOSED STREET IMPROVEMENT FOR I(EU0GG AVENUE FROM W,54TH ST, TO
<br />W.55TH ST. Mayor Bredesen explained that this Public Hearing is actually a continuation
<br />of the April 24th Hearing for Street Improvement in Kellogg Avenue between W.52nd and
<br />TJ.56th Street, at which time, at the request of the property owners, the 5200,5300 and
<br />5500 blocks were eliminated from the proposed improvement. Estimates of Cost for the 5400 Block were given as follows: $10.20 per Assessable Foot €or Bituminous Surface
<br />Treatment with Concrete Curb and Gutter; $7.19 per Assessable Foot Bituminous Stabilized
<br />Base with Concrete Curb and Gutter, this last at a 28' width, which would eliminate
<br />the tearing up of driveways, bushes, etc.
<br />the same type of treatment it has had, Mr. Hyde replied that this is not being done,
<br />now; that the only other thing to be done is a dust coat of oil--which will not be
<br />satisfactory. Messrs. Moorhead and Adamson, and Mrs. Scott, objected to curb; one lady
<br />asked that the holes be fixed; Mr. Newline reviewed the matter of the curb and gutter
<br />petition, which was signed only because residents felt this was the only way to have
<br />the road repaired; and, when it became evident that residents could not agree on what
<br />they wanted, Mr. Adamson suggested that a committee from the neighborhood meet with the
<br />Village Engineer to work something out.
<br />by motion Dickson, seconded by VanValkenburg and carried, Hearing was continued to July 10,
<br />for neighborhood-engineer solution.
<br />Asked if the street can be resurfaced with
<br />This suggestion met with Council approval, and,
