Jerry Turner said the drawings for the construction of the roads have been completed. The contract documents are not ready. Asphalt and resource experts said that drastic changes need to be made in street design. The base needs to be removed and 23" of asphalt need to be poured. The estimated cost is $185,000 which includes drainage and road improvements. Grant consultants have been contacted.

Jack Jones of L. H. Poggemeyer, Inc.,said it is doubtful that the sewage plant contract can be amended to include the seweres needed in Beechwood and Thornewood Drives because 1.)the facility plans did not warrant a sanitary sewer and 2.) fEoPAr cfuuntdibnagcks. He said he would approach this positively, although the chances are slim.
Manager Plunkett agreed that this should be pursued. He said the cost of the sewer project is $150-170,000 or $25/foot.
Vice Mayor Davison asked what the next step is. Manager Plunkett responded by saying that the County Commissioners should be approached for support. He said he would look into the Village' s water capital improvements fund. He feels the srohaoduldcobnestruction should wait until the sewer problem is solved and that the road graded in the spring.

Councilmember Schnaidt said things should get moving before prices to up. He scheduled a meeting with Jerry
Turner and the residents for March 9, 1983.
Blum said the citizens need to know what is going on. Another citizen asked if the residents had been told about the sewer problems. Manager Plunkett said they had not, but the houses will be identified and informed.
Earl Richards, another Village resident, said that he is unaware of what has happened since the last meeting. Manager Plunkett stated that 1.)design for the road and drainage system are done, 2.)water line problems have been dis- covered 3.)the gas company has been contacted for location of lines -they will have to be replaced when the road is constructed, t(he residents will not be assessed for this)a,nd 4.)the funding picture is cloudy -the Village and its residents cannot foot the bill without other funding. If the County Commissioners fund the drainage problem and with Village revenue sharing and or an assessment of $5000 to the residents, the original estimate would be possible.
Blum asked Jerry Turner if the trees in the right away would have to be removed. He said they would have to be. Blum said the atmosphere would be greatly altered.
