<br />COUNCIL CONDUCTS PUBLIC HEARINGS ON SANITARY SEHER AND WATERMAIN FOR BLAKE ROAD
<br />AREA: TABLES BOTH PROPOSED II*PROVEl*ENTS.
<br />Mayor Bredesen announced to the large audience present the Continuation of the
<br />April 8th and 22nd Public Hearings-on proposed Sanitary Sewer in BLAKE ROAD FROM
<br />INTERLACHEN BLVD. TO 566 FEET NORTH OF PINE GROVE ROAD, SCRIVER ROAD FROM BLAKE
<br />ROAD TO CUL-DE-SAC, AND LAKE RIDGE ROAD FROM BLAKE ROAD TO CUL-DE-SAC. Estimate
<br />of Cost was again given, being $91,417.09 proposed to be assessed against 35
<br />connections for $2,611.91 per connection. Manager Hyde reviewed for the audience
<br />the preliminaries leading to the Council's proposal for this improvement--and the
<br />action taken at the April 22nd 1-leeting, continuing Hearing to this evening in
<br />order that investigation might be made of a possible public health problem in the
<br />area. He reported that tests made of Dr. Shea's property have revealed that a
<br />septic tank can be installed but there is no guaranty as to how long such a.system
<br />will handle sewage disposal; that trouble fa&ther south on Blake Road seems to
<br />have been solved; that Mirror Lake is highly polluted. He added that the need for
<br />a second resurfacing of Blake Road, were the watermain improvement to be delayed
<br />€or a time after sewer construction, rather ties the proposed watermain improvement
<br />to the sewer improvement now being discussed.
<br />evidence shows that the one lot which has had sewage disposal trouble can support
<br />a private system; that residents feel that a delay in constructing these improve-
<br />ments would be helpful to them; that while he does not concede that it is necessary
<br />to have public sewer in this area he does not feel that one improvement should go
<br />in without the other.
<br />Shea private sewage disposal system draining into the Dr. Boos well.
<br />replied it appears that the flow is in this direction but that this is not fully
<br />known because Blake Road cuts through the area at this point.
<br />residents are looking for a little reprieve from high taxes, rather than
<br />additional improvement assessments.
<br />they are badly in need of sanitary sewer, and asked that arrangements be made for a
<br />connection from this proposed improvement. Manager Hyde told her that Sanitary
<br />Sewer had been proposed for Schaefer Road some time ago, but had been abandoned
<br />because of objections by residents. Hrs. Roy 17. Larsen inquired as to why this
<br />connection cannot be made from the trunk sewer in the area, and was informed that
<br />engineering details on the trunk sewer are not available at this Hearing but can
<br />be seen in the office.

<br />residential property, and asked that Council stop adding additional costs to
<br />property already extensively taxes.
