<br />FROM GARRISON LANE TO 480 FT. NORTH AND IN VALLEY VIEW ROAD FROM THE
<br />CENTERLINE OF OAKLAWN AVENUE EXTEDED TO 406 FT. WEST.
<br />Affidavit of Publication of "Notice of Public Hearing" in Edina-
<br />Morningside Courier September 14 and 21, 1961; and, pursuant to said
<br />Notice, Public Hearing was called on the above entitled improvement,
<br />which is an alternate proposal worked out with the affected residents,
<br />to the Sanitary Sewer route approved by the Council July 10, 1961, as
<br />Sanitary Sewer Improvement No, 181. Vu-Graph Slide was shown of
<br />proposed new route and area proposed to be assessed, and Manager Hyde
<br />reported that the Engineer's Estimate of Cost, before taking bids today,
<br />had been $10,139.36, for $1,448.48 per Connection; that the low bid
<br />today, which was considerably lower than the other bids received, will
<br />raise assessable cost to about $2,025 per connection. Mr. Neal Swant
<br />inquired about the legality of connecting a large building, to be built
<br />across the back of his two lots, to the 6" hertrice connection through
<br />the Tedman property, stating that if there would be some difficulty in
<br />this he is willing to pay the difference between the 6" connection and
<br />a gt' connection if it does not total more than $1.00 per'foot.
<br />inquired as to whether a manhole will be placed at the end of the
<br />connection and was informed that the connection will be plugged, now;
<br />that no manhole is contemplated; that when he wishes to connect a direct
<br />connection ma$:bbezmade without manhole. Captain Gans told Mr. Swant that
<br />from a design standpoint he believes the Village has fully satisfied the
<br />requirements for service to this area. Mr. Swant inquired about possible
<br />connection for a car wash, and was informed that the Village has an
<br />ordinance on car wash operations, which provides special regulations for
<br />this type of business, including grease traps before water can be sent
<br />into the sewer system.
<br />favoring improvement, was read.
<br />and none had been received prior thereto.
<br />the Vooddale Avenue-Valley View Road intersection is bad because of the
<br />steep grade of 'Nooddale Avenue running south of Valley View Road, Trustee
<br />Tupa suggested that perhaps Wooddale could be partially filled while the
<br />sewer work is being done. Mr. Hyde reported that this probably would have
<br />to be a major construction job (6f its own, because he felt that fill would
<br />have to start from the extreme south end to get a gradual grade.
<br />felt it would help if a plateau large enough for one car could be had
<br />just at the intersection. No action taken on this.
