<br />1. PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED STORM SEWERS FOR THE LABUENA VISTA-THE
<br />HEIGHTS AREA.
<br />Street Surfacing for this area had been the subject of a rather lengthy meeting
<br />held last Tuesday at Cahill Church by the neighborhood improvement association,
<br />at which Village personnel had explained the construction proposed. Vu-Graph
<br />Slide was shown,eutlining both construction proposed and the area proposed to
<br />be assessed therefor. Manager Hyde told the group present that the Estimated
<br />Cost, given at the neighborhood meeting, of 3?5$ per square foot, is now reduced,
<br />after bids t%en today, to 3$ per square foot. The only objection offered was
<br />that of Mr.. E.C. Stow, developer of Brookview Heights 4th Addition, who stated
<br />he has been informed by his own engineers that a storm sewer to drain this
<br />development can be constructed for $1,500; that, before the Village cut 17.67th
<br />street through €or purpose of installing a sanitary trunk sewer the drainage
<br />from the south and west drained down FJ.68th Street, fio the Creek, and north-
<br />easterly, through the property to the north of his development, again to the
<br />Creek, He told Council he believes his property should be assessed only the
<br />$1,500 but that he is willing to stretch a point and accept an assessment of
<br />$100 per 1ot.for the 23 lots in hisplat. Brookview Heights 4th Addition is
<br />proposed to be assessed some $6,600; the west lots to be assessed for their
<br />entire lot area, and the lots backing to the creek to be assessed for only
<br />the front part of the lots, which drains to Cahill Road.
<br />Ganz pointed out that Brookview Heights 4th Addition would have a very serious
<br />drainage problem if the Village had not designed a storm sewer &o drain the
<br />entire area; and several persons in the audience objected to Mr. Stow's
<br />arguments, one stating Mr. Stow is aware that the property he owns is high
<br />and dry and needs no storm sewer--that if properties contributing stormwater -
<br />drains must be assessed.

<br />Clerk presented Affidavits of Publi-
<br />Pursuant to said
<br />llanager Hyde told Council that the matter of Storm Sewers and
