Mr. Hyde pointed out that estimates are given on the high <br />side and that the assessment will only be made on actual cost of the projects. He <br />added that while there is not much trouble in the area at present, it would appear <br />that the improvements would be necessary by 1970 and that with rising costs the <br />assessments would undoubtedly be considerably higher at that time.

Micka, 7700 Glasgow Drive, who stated that comparable improvements in <br />Bloomington cost considerably less. Mr. Hyde pointed out that the City of Bloom- <br />ington pays a portion of the cost of public improvements from other than special <br />assessment funds. The property owner at 7708 Glasgow advised that all those who <br />had signed the petitions in January, 1968, still desire the improvements. Mr. D, -H.' <br />Youngren, 7717 Glasgow Drive, and Mrs. James Benson urged that the improvements be <br />authorized. Following some discussion, Councilman Johnson moved that the improve- <br />ments be authorized, in view of the fact that eight out of twelve properties have <br />indicated their approval, because it will increase the value of the property, and <br />in view of anticipated rising prices. Motion was seconded by Councilman Shaw and <br />carried. <br />3.
