PRELIMINARY SPECIAL ASSESSMENT -- CONSTRUCTION OF OLDE BUGGY DRIVE EXTENSION

Administrator Vitas presented this issue to the Board and Town Residents. He stated that an agreement had been reached with Apple Valley Church, Town Resident David Hildebrand, Zac Investments, and the Town. He asked for the Board’s approval for the Town to borrow for this project. Administrator Vitas stated that the Sanitary District would also need to be involved in this project.

Chairman Tews asked if the Town normally contributes financially to projects such as this.

Administrator Vitas replied that yes, if it is in the Town’s best interest. Public benefit would be the issue of access.

Administrator Vitas stated that the total cost would be $225,000 and the Town’s cost would be about $65,000.

Much discussion ensued.

Apple Valley Church requested that the Board approve this.

ADJOURNMENT

Seeing no further comments, questions or objections, Chairman Tews declared the Public Hearing closed at 6:07 p.m.

 

Respectfully submitted,
