<br />PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF PERMANENT STREET SURFACING,
<br />CONCRETE CURB AND GUTTER IN HIBISCUS AVE.. HWY.#100 TO 140' E. OF WEST SHORE DR.:
<br />TRILLIUM LA. FROM HIBISCUS AVE. TO LARKSPUR LA.: MONARDO LA. FROM HIBISCUS AVE.
<br />TO TRILLIUM LA. : PHLOX LA. FROM HIBISCUS AVE. TO AND INCLUDING TURN-AROUND:

<br />BLOCK 4, LAKE EDINA 2ND ADDN. FROM HIBISCUS AVE. TO WESTERLY: IN DRAINAGE EASEMENT
<br />BETWEEN LOTS 19 AND 20, BLOCK 4, ALAKE EDINA 2ND ADDN. FROM HIBISCUS AVE. TO
<br />SOUTHERLY. 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 />He added that
<br />Mr. E. C. Stow was immediately on his feet, exclaiming
<br />Attorney Josiah Brill, Sr., representing Mr. Stow,
<br />Mr. Stow then told the
