<br />1. PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED CONSTRUCTION OF STORM SEkER AND APPURTEMNKES
<br />IN SCHAEFER- ROAD FFOM A, POND Or4, THE WEST SIDE OF SCHAEFER ROAD AT A POINT 15' i4ORTH-
<br />0F:THE S.?l. CORNER OF LOT 25, AUD, SUaD, #325 TO A POND 03 THE EAST SIDE OF SCHAEFER
<br />RD. AT A POii4T 233.5T IJORTH OF THE S.W. CORNER OF SAID LOT 25, Vu-Grapn Slide was
<br />shovm of proposed route of improvement, and proposed assessment district,
<br />Hyde explained that this project is being proposed by the Village because of a
<br />problem which exists in Schaefer Road abutting the Rice property, and the complaints
<br />and requests for pumping each time there is a heavy rain, and also because tho
<br />ponding at this point makes it difficult to maintain the surface,
<br />of the project was given as $8,383.76, proposed to be assessed against 184,760 Sq.
<br />Ft., for $.0454 per Sq. Ft.
<br />proposal for drainage
<br />built across a swamp; that he had built a shoulder about twelve feet from the edge
<br />of the road, made a pond out of the swamp, and had planted trees to beautify the
<br />property; that Harold Schaefer had subsequently installed a tile down the side of
<br />the road to the south pond; that the Gas Company had dug up the tile in 1952 but
<br />there was no record of their having replaced it. Dr. Rice told Council there had
<br />been little trouble until last year, when the Rices lost three trees; that the
<br />Village had asked permission to open the culvert this year (culvert draining from
<br />west to east, on Schaefer property), and that this permission had been granted, and
<br />the VLllaga had subsequently pumped on three different occasions.
<br />for the amount of this year's pumping bill ($145) he could afford to pay the full
<br />bill each year for forty years, for the amount of his assessment far tho proposed
<br />storm sewer. F4anager Hyde asked if it would be feasible to just bring the drain
<br />down the side of the road to where it used to be, and Public Borks Director Gans
<br />re;oorted that the matter of a former drain tile is still a moot point, because of
<br />the fact that there is a six-foot difference in ground levels between the high
<br />point between the two ponds and the ponds themselves, Adding that the Village
<br />Engineering Department has a definite responsibility to save General Fund moneys
<br />wlnere a serious road maintenance problem exists, Captain Gans reported that the
<br />tlaintenance Superintendent finds Schaefer Road such a maintenance problem; that
<br />Estimated Cost
<br />Dr. Carl Rice, who stated he had submitted a counter
<br />of the street, reported that years ago the road had been
