<br />Mr, A. I, Raugland, 4821 bl. Sunnyslope Road, presented an unsigned statement against
<br />the proposed storm sewer and stated that while he sympathized with Mrs. Mann's
<br />predicament, he did not believe that the proposed storm sewer would alleviate her
<br />problem because her lot is lower than the creek and because there was not sufficient
<br />slope to provide adequate drainage. He stated that Mrs. Mann's house had been built
<br />at too low an elevation,
<br />he had made on his property shows that his water does not drain to 'Mrs. Mann's property
<br />and that he would oppose being assessed for the storm sewer.

<br />solution could be found.

<br />been satisfactory because of the fact that they often filled with snow which served
<br />to hold back the water,
<br />that water from his property flows west and that he, therefore, does not feel that
<br />he should be included in the drainage area.
<br />grading areas farther to the south in order to divert the water into the street before
<br />it reaches a low pdint might be considered, but that this would require the cooperation
<br />of all property owners.
<br />agreeable to meet together to investigate the possibility of sharing the cost of soil.
<br />tests and possible methods of diverting the water before it reaches Mrs. Mann's property,
