<br />cle to west line of Heath Glen Addition
<br />The above improvements covering the same area, hearings were conducted concurrently.
<br />Mr. Hyde presented total estimated cost of the sanitary sewer at $20,147.74, pro-
<br />posed to be assessed against 12 assessable lots at an estimated cost per assessable
<br />lot of $1,678.98. Total estimated cost of the watermain was given by Mr. Hyde at
<br />$14,860.97, proposed to be assessed against 12 assessable lots at an estimated cost
<br />.of $1,238.41 per assessable lot. Mr. H. Glocke, 7721 Glasgow Drive, advised that
<br />the majority of property owners oppose the improvements and questioned the estimated
<br />cost of the assessment. 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. Mr. R. D.
<br />Hathaway, 7705 Glasgow Drive, spoke in opposition to the improvements, as did Mr.
<br />Earl J. 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
