Mr. Hyde presented Analysis of Assessment showing total construction <br />cost of $116,053.09e Extra Ordinary Benefit was given at $7,900.00 with the <br />Special Benefit (to be levied over the entire district at $108,153.09. It is <br />proposed to assess the project over 2,584,921 assessable feet at -$0.04184 per <br />assessable foot as against $0.06295 estimated cost per square foot. Mr. Hyde <br />recalled that at the Improvement Hearing it was suggested that the project be <br />assessed with a "no mans Land" for lots from 18,000 square feet to 24,000 <br />square feet. Anyone with a lot up to 18,000 square feet would pay total <br />square footage for that lot. If a lot was more than 18,000 square feet, it <br />would be assessed one-half of the additional square footage. Mr. Hyde also <br />recommended that Lot 15, Prospect Hills, and Lot 4, Block 3, Prospect Hills <br />2nd'Addition should have provision tihat the balance of the "one-half rate" <br />assessment should be made if these lots are hivided of further developed. Mr. <br />Hyde further pointed out that the Assessors and Engineers had proposed extra- <br />ordinary benefits to low lying lots particularly in Kemrich Knolls, which made <br />.the storm sewer necessary, and also recommended that the assessment be spread <br />aver twenty years. Mr, Jerry Kelly, 5801 Kemrich Dnive, objected to the extra- <br />ordinary benefit of $700 applied to his lot. Mr. Hyde recalled that Mr. Kelly's <br />lot was the swamp hole for the entire area and that the Village had been <br />threatened with a suit by builders in this area if the storm sewer had not been <br />installed. He explained that the Village's method of assessment in declaring <br />some properties to have extra ordinary benefit has been upheld in court. Mr. <br />Roy A. Bogen's letter protesting $500.00 assessmedf.-bfoy extraoramhary benefits <br />for Lat 5, Block 2, Fjeldheim 2nd Addition was noted. Mr. Arnie.Bogen protested <br />the assessment further, noting that the water runs in from E. P. Johnson <br />Addition. <br />Shannon Drive, also protested that the.i-1: property should not have been cpnsidered <br />to be extraordinarily assessed. Mr. Hyde assured Mr. Elsing that the Village <br />would check to see if Mr. Elsing's complaint that his property was filled with <br />gravel and no black dirt under the sod was justified. Mr. Boyd was told that <br />the removal of a culvert does benefit the property whether it improves it <br />aesthetically or not. Following considerable discussion, Councilman Johnson <br />said that he feels that the Village's assessment policy of extraordinary benefit <br />is sound and equitable and offered the following resolution and mwed its adoption: <br />Pursuant <br />Mr. DarrciZX H.
