CONSTRUCTLON OF PERMANENT STREET SURFACING AND CONCRETE CURB AND GUTTER IN THE <br />Affidavits of Publication in the <br />Pursuant <br />FOLLOWING: <br />Millpond Place from Westbrook Lane westerly to east line of Minneapolis, <br />Northfield and Southern Railroad. <br />Mr, Hyde presented total estimated project cost at $5,770.17 with estimated cost per <br />assessable foot of $11.40, with an alternate basis of assessment on a "per lot" charge <br />of $721.27, <br />drainage problem in which wa*er flows easterly from the railroad tracks to Westbrook <br />are interested in permanent street improvement, they are trying to eliminate an area <br />the area. He feels that this .will be the case if the curb and gutter are used in an <br />attempt to channel storm drainage in this manner. Mt.. Tupa, Jr. further stated that <br />in order to prevent flooding an obstruction had been placed at the northern edge of <br />Millpond Place at the western extremitysby the railroad property. <br />storm water that flows north from the Grandview*area and diverts it down Millpond <br />Place. <br />and R. A. Yackle, 5117 Millpond Place, all spoke in opposition to curb and gutter, <br />stating that the mud which would be washed down from the railroad tracks would fill <br />up the curb. They further contended that this is a storm sewer and drainage problem <br />and that a11 contributing to the problem should pay their share of the improvement. <br />Mr..Tupa, Sr. stated that the Village Building Xnspector had erred in allowing the <br />house at 5120 Millpond Place to be built below grade, creating a serious water problem <br />for all of the north side of Millpond Place, and that. it, is the obligation of the <br />Village to recdify this error. Mr. Whitlock stated that he has been unable to find <br />any case in the United States in which a municipality has been held responsible for <br />problems resulting when houses are built-below grade. <br />the water would have gone had the house at 5120 Millpond Place been built at proper <br />grade and was told by Mr. Hite that most of it would have continued across the back <br />yards easterly to Westbrook Lane where it would have been picked up by storm sewer. <br />Mr. Hite further stated that the obstruction under the T.H. 169 bridge which <br />presently forces water to the east side and then north to Millpond Place will be removed <br />so that water from the Intersection of Interlachen and Highway 169 will flow northerly <br />on the west side of the railroad. <br />which the problem might be solved, he feels that permanent sweet sur€acing with curb <br />and gutter as proposed will solve the street surfacing and storm sewer problem at <br />the same time at a cost which would be less expensive than any other possible solution. <br />Mr. Whitlock stated that he does not believe the railroad right-of-way can be assessed <br />for storm sewerr In order that estimates can be developed for a storm sewer to <br />serve this area, Trustee Johnson's motion was seconded by Trustee MacMillan and <br />unanimously carried to continue hearing until May 2. <br />He stated that this improvement is being proposed as a solution to a <br />Mr. Frank Tupa, Jr., 5113 Millpond ?lace, stated that while he and his neighbors ane. <br />&drainage problem aid-that they do not €avor making MilLpond Place the storm sewer for 'I <br />This acts to block <br />Messrs.
