It is further proposed to to <br />construct a new permanent street surfacing with concrete curb and gutter in the <br />entire area. Mr. Hyde presented total estimated construction costs as follows. <br />for watermain, permanent street surfacing and concrete curb and gutter: <br />estimated project cost, $376,004.38, proposed to be assessed against 136 lots at <br />an estimated cost of $2,681.23. Six properties which already have Village water <br />would be assessed at an estimated cost of $lO.QO per assessable foot. Estimated <br />cost for watermain only was given at $800 per lot for the petitioned area only <br />and a cost of $725.00 per lot was given as the estimate for street repair only. <br />Mr, Hyde noted that a petition had been presented in opposition to the improve- <br />ment by residents outside of the petitioned area and that sentiment was high <br />in favor of street repair only in the petitioned area, He advised that the staff <br />favors curb and gutter on the basis of more adequate drainage and maintenance. ' . <br />sgQZ.rol. Blr, Frank Uhlemann, 5520 Highland Road, said that he feels the cost of <br />street surfacing with curb and gutter is excessive and unnecessary, but that he <br />would favor watermain and street repair at a cost of $1,500 per lot. Following <br />considerable discussion, Councilman Courtney noted that once a street has been <br />dug up for installation of utilities it is never as good as originally and that <br />the Engineers have recommended what they feel is best for the community and that <br />the .$rfce Iw211 undoubtedly be ' considerably higher when Yeplacement is necessary <br />at a future time. <br />posed, he moved that watermain be installed in the petitioned area only and that <br />the streets be repaired rather than replaced with curb and gutter as recommended. <br />Motion was seconded 'by Councilman Johnson who also emphasized that the street <br />would not be as good with a repair job as with a new surfacing. <br />{See Resolution Ordering Improvement'later in Minutes.) <br />B. <br />Since these streets'are a portion of a much larger <br />Total <br />In view of the strong opposition to the improvement as pro- <br />qotion carried. <br />CONSTRUCTION OF IIATEREIAIN AND APPURTENANCES, PERElANENT STREET SURFACING ANI) <br />CONCRETE CURB AND GUTTER IN THE FOLLOWING: <br />Interlachen Circle from Interlachen Road to Interlachen Road <br />Mr. Hyde presented estimated cost for permanent street surfacing and concrete <br />curb and gutter at $18,450.70 and for watermain at $9,011.94 with total esti- <br />mated project cost at $27,462.64.
