Manager Hyde reported that this Hearing has been called at the request <br />of several residents in Lake Edina 2nd Addition; that the Street Surfacing Improve- <br />ment had been publicly heard in April of this year and, at the request of the <br />developer, had been removed from this year's work; that, if the street improvement <br />is to be considered this year, the storm sewer should be considered at the same <br />time. Captain Gans reported that his Estimate of Cost, prepared as a composite <br />project involving a) paving with concrete curb and gutter, and bO storm sewer, <br />is $79,190.00, for S9.G per assessable foot using Portland Cement Concrete for <br />the paving; $76,906.00, for $9.18 per assessable foot using Asphalt Concrete <br />Paving with Portland Cement Concrete Curb and Gutter. He said that for purposes <br />of discussion the Storm Sewer portion of the improvement has been separated from <br />the balance of the project at a cost of $9,621.00; that when Village Storm Sewer <br />Main No. 1 was under discussion, and until a short time before the hearing on that <br />project, plans for Main 1 called for storm sewer continuing westward along <br />Hibiscus Avenue to a low point in the street just a few feet west of West Shore <br />Drive, but that just a few days before the hearing Mr. Stow had agreed to install <br />an outlet from Hibiscus Avenue to Lake Normandale along the route of Main No. 1 <br />at his own expense and this portion of the project had been dropped fromMain <br />No. 1 plans; that the outlot has not been provided at this time, and storm sewer <br />must be installed before streets are paved; that it is for this reason that the <br />storm sewer cost has been broken out of the composite project. <br />without storm sewer cost of street surfacing and curb would be an estimated <br />$8.05 per assessable foot for the asphalt concrete paving with Portland cement <br />concrete curb and gutter--but that this would leave some $9,600 for Mr. Stow's <br />financial consideration. <br />angrily, "This is the first time I have heard of this! And not only that, but <br />in the minutes of a meeting I have here there are certain things I never knew <br />about and never discussed!" <br />stated his client is a I'bit difficult to control"--that Mr. Stow does not object <br />to the minutes as such; that all he is questioning is Mr. Barr's statement in <br />the minutes. Mr. Brill added that this proposed storm sewer will not benefit <br />Mr. Stow's property in any way, and that if it is the intent of the Village to <br />assess this property for it there will have to be a fight against the assessment. <br />Mr. Stow then reported, '#If there has to be a storm sewer and they want it, I'll <br />put it in and pay for it. They're not going to charge me $9,000 for it when I <br />can get it for $1,500." Manager Hyde then presented copy of the Final Plat of <br />Stow's Lake Edina 2nd Addition, which shows storm sewer easements in the properties <br />through which it is now proposed to construct storm sewer. <br />council that he would pay for the storm sewer out of his own pocket rather than <br />see the people assessed exhorbitantly for it; that he will furnish the Village <br />with Mr. Godward's layout for this storm sewer. At Mayor Bredesen's question, <br />"When will you furnish these plans?", Mr. Stow replied they would be furnished <br />within two weeks. Captain Gans told Mr. Stow that the engineering has been <br />completed and that the Village will be glad to furnish Mr. Stow with its plans, <br />inasmuch as storm sewer must be installed in accord with Village specifications. <br />Mr. Stow asked that Village plans be forward to his engineer, stating that the <br />work will be done after Captain Gans and Mr. Godward have agreed. <br />then asked, "How soon after Gans and Godward agree will the work be done?", and <br />Mr. Stow replied, 'Within two weeks after they approve plans we will start to work." <br />Referring back to Mr. Stow's earlier statement concerning the minutes, Mr. Hyde <br />asked for permission to direct a question to the Clerk, and on permission by the <br />Mayor Bredesen announced that this public hearing, scheduled for Hearing <br />Clerk presented Affidavit of Publication <br />Pursuant to <br />1. <br />- <br />I <br />He added that <br />Mr. E.
