<br />Mr,.Hyde read the report of James Hensley, Village Sanitarian, which stated that
<br />of the seventeen wells in question, the fifteen which were tested were satisfactory.
<br />The report indicated, however, that there was gross pollution in all ponds, and approval
<br />of the entire sewer project was urged. Mr, Mark S. Dahlquist, 5012 Schaefer Road,
<br />asked for an explanation of the comparative cost, Mr. Hite stated that at the first
<br />Hearing it was proposed to construct the sewer on Schaefer Road from a point just to
<br />the north- of Interlachen Blvd. to a point approximateiy 1,900 feet south of
<br />Interlachen Blvd. which would provide sanitary sewer service for 21 connections on'
<br />Schaefer Road between Interlachen Blvd, and Nestwood Court. Total estimated assessable
<br />cost was $59,759.00 with an estimated per connection cost of $2,845.65, He stated
<br />that based upon bids recently received on this project, the estimated per connection
<br />cost would be reduced to $2,545.00. The alternate "short" proposal being heard at
<br />this meeting would provide immediate sanitary sewer service for seven connections
<br />on Schaefer Road from Interlachen Blvd. to 480 feet south and from Interlachen Blvd.
<br />to 355 feet, more or less, north.
<br />with an estimated per connection cost of $2,145.00 for-the seven immediate sewers
<br />and $527,28 for each of the fourteen remaining lots, Again, based upon received
<br />bids, the per connection costs woula be $2,43l6k3 and 577,56, respectively, The
<br />watermain proposed at the Hearing of May 17 would provide service for twenty-one
<br />connections at a total estimated assessable cost of $21,159.40 with an estimated
<br />cost per connection of $1,007.59, Based upon the bids, this per connection cost
<br />would be $943.27,
<br />provide immediate water service for seven connections.
<br />connection would be $1,007,59 for the seven lots immediately served and estimated
<br />cost for the remaining fourteen lots would be $361,64.
<br />immediately served connections would cost $943.27 each, and the "future service" ,
<br />connections would be $361+64 each if there were seven connections in the immediate
<br />district, and $316.89 each if there were eight connections in the immediate district.
<br />All bid prices provide for temporary road replacement..
<br />Vood Addition property in the project and was told that these properties abutted
<br />Schaefer Road in the location of the proposed improvements,
<br />that he was surprised to hear the report of the Sanitariari and wondered if the
<br />pollution was not caused by stables in the area.
<br />was evident in locations where no stables existed,
<br />that he felt that in view of the report of the Sanitarian that the Village would be
<br />shirking its public health responsibility if the shorteF sewer system were installed.
<br />Hayor Bredesen pointed out that the homes that are contributing to the pollution can
<br />be forced to connect to the sewer after it is installed, Mr, Dahlquist asked if the
<br />sewer and water could be delayed another two OP three years inasmuch as storm sewer
<br />installation is anticipated at that time,
<br />the risk to life would be too great to defer the sewer, Questioned as to whether
<br />satisfactory water can be furnished without a loop, Mr. Hite stated that he was
<br />sure that there would be enough users on the llshortll project to keep the water in
<br />a fresh condition, whereas in the ''long1' project, the water wouId have a tendency
<br />to become stale. Hr. Frederick Thorson, attorney representing Pir, and Mrs. Roy Larsen, - -
<br />stated that in view of the results of the tests, the Larsens are now in favor of
<br />installing bothasewer and water as proposed at the Mziy 17 meeting, - connections for sewer and water for their property'in order that it may be subdivided

<br />No. 237 was seconded by Tupa and unanimously carried.
<br />concerning installation of watermain, Mayor Bredesen asked why the people with the
<br />"short" line should pay khree times as much to get water as those to the south of
<br />them. Hr. Hite replied that properties to the south will have to pay additional
<br />assessments at the time the pipe is extended into that area. Mr. F. A. Wheeler,
