Mr. Kazemi <br />Abol, 4840 Westbrook Lane, ISr. E. .W.

Following considerable dis- <br />cussion, Councilman VanValkenburg's motion authorizing the improvement on the <br />basis that the Village has negotiated as much as possible with the State and <br />on the basis that there is no present trunk stob <br />on the basis that if the State Highway Department were not involved, the cost <br />of the needed storm sewer would be considerably higher, was seconded b'y Council- <br />man Shaw and carried. Councilman Shaw made the additional comment that the <br />trunk sewer was necessary because of the fact that some of the lateral storm <br />sewers in the area would have to dead-end 'and become useless without the trunk <br />sewer. <br />B, <br />Mr. Dunn noted that various adjustments would be made <br />In response <br />and at that time the State had turned down the request <br />He noted also that a storm sewer system for this area had been <br />The storm sewer assessment <br />Mr. Richard Sullivan of the <br />. sewer in the area and also <br />(See Resolution Ordering Improvement later in Minutes.) <br />CURB AND GUTTER, DRIVEWAY AND SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENT NO.
