<br />MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF-THE
<br />THE EDINA VILLAGE COUNCIL HELD AT EDINA VILLAGE HALL
<br />MONDAY, APRIL 19, 1965, AT 7:00 P.M.
<br />Members answering Rollcall were MacMillan, Rixe, Tupa and VanValkenburg and Bredesen.
<br />MINUTES of the Regular Meeting of April 5, 1965, were not completed sufficiently
<br />early to allow Council review.
<br />TYLER COURT - ARTHUR STREET AREA STORM SEWER TO HAVE NEW HEARING MAY 3, 1965s This
<br />Hearing, continued from April 5, 1965, was to consider the alternative of eliminating
<br />the ponding area east of Tyler Court by construction of a completely enclosed system.
<br />Manager Hyde reported that the several petitions and letters opposing the original
<br />proposal had been thoroughly reviewed and a consulting hydraulic engineer had also
<br />reviewed the situation. IThe completely enclosed system included pipe diameters from
<br />27 to 42 inches, and included additional catch basins and connecting pipes. The
<br />estimated cost of this.adjusted system was given as $49,782639, which would have to
<br />be assessed at the rate of $0.0424 per square foot. The Engineering Department did
<br />not agree that the substantial increase in cost would be justified by the benefits
<br />gained. It was recommended, however, that a modified system which would increase
<br />the pipe size connecting the pond east of.Tyler Court to Mirror Lakes be installed.
<br />The estimated cost of such a system was $320373.75, to be assessed at the rate of
<br />$0.0281 per square foot. This proposed system would allow the pond to drain within
<br />three hours after a rain storm occurring once in 50 years.
<br />Mr. George Gould, 6615 Waterman Avenue, presented to the Council the opinion that
<br />a public .improvement hearing could not increase the cost, but could -,only decrease
<br />the cost, as advertised in the Notice of Hearing. Mr. Whitlock, Village Attorney,
<br />stated that bond attorneys will accept alterations that are within 33 -1/3 per cent
<br />of the advertised estimate of cost.. VanValkenburg then moved that this proposal
<br />be tabled, seconded by Tupa and unanimously carried. (See Resolution Providing
<br />for Public Hearings later in Minutes.)
<br />OLINGER ROAD AREA SANITARY SEWER LIFT STATION AND FORCE MAIN TO HAVE NEW HEARING
<br />ON MAY 3, 1965s Engineer Hite presented the estimate of cost as 39,509.26 to be
<br />assessed against the number of estimated lots when the area is fully developed at
<br />$316.07 per lot. Manager Hyde stated that the per lot assessment would be reduced
<br />to $208.00 if the areas along Nine Mile Creek were developed for residential purposes
<br />rather than for park purposes. Mr. Hite recommended that if the project appears
<br />feasible, a new hearing be scheduled to include all the possible lots in the area,
<br />assuming there will be no parkland development in the assessment district, so all
<br />affected properties will have a chance to avail themselves of the improvement..
<br />Tupa then moved that the project, as proposed, be tabled, allowing for readvertisement
<br />covering the larger area. Motion seconded and unanimously carried. (See Resolution
<br />Providing for Public Hearings later in Minutes.)
<br />XERXES AVENUE ADDITION ALLEY PERMANENT SURFACING TO BE HEARD 14AY 3. 1965. At the
<br />recommendation of Air. Hite, the permanent surfacing of proposed alley in Blocks 1
<br />and 2, Xerxes Avenue Addition, was scheduled for public hearing on May 3, 1965.
<br />VanValkenburg offered the following Resolution and moved its adoption:
