Development Commission -Councilmember Avery reported on the Commission's
meeting of September 26, 1985. At that meeting the
Commission met with Gary Price, developer of the Hilengreen Subdivision,
and went through the latest punch list of items yet to
be completed on the subdivision. It was determined that some of
the items could be finished in a day or so. The three main items
yet to be finished and of the greatest concern to the Development
Commission were: the sewer lift station; the looping of the water
main to the area where future condominiums are planned, and back
into the system, and; the private secondary access road for emergency
vehicles and fire trucks.
With regard to the sewer lift station, Mr. Price presented an
Escrow Agreement"p,lacing a certain amount of dollars in escrow
to be available to the Village for a period of 10 years, when and
if the development of Hilengreen and Donald Ross Village Condominiums
necessitates updating the present sewer lift station in that
area. Mr. Avery said consensus of members was that the idea was
fine but questioned the amount designated to be placed in escrow.
With regard to the secondary access road, Mr. Price has two
options: one, to obtain an easement from Mr. Ross, using a portion
of his drive, and second, cutting out a portion of the backside of
the hill for the road. The first option would probably be the best
of the two options, but Mr. Ross doesn't seem to want to give Mr.
Price a signed easement.
The water line loop to the site of future condominiums and looping
back into the system, seemed to be the most difficult for Mr.
Price. He claimed that he could not complete the looping of the
lines because of the topography of the hillside and placement of
future condominiums.
Following a lengthy discussion among members of the Development
Commission and Mr. Price, consensus was that Mr. Price would
be given thirty (30) days to come up with a solution to the above
items, finish the punch list of items, and meet with the Development
Commission again to finalize this matter.
Manager Plunkett added, that the Village's engineer is working
on a final punch list, because he feels it needs some modification
to costs and contents.
Granville Improvement BoardO/pera House Park Improvement Committee
Mr. Davison commented that there are still four sections of fencing
yet to be installed in the park. During a recent meeting, questions
were raised about the maintenance of the Opera House Park, and have asked that he request of Council $200ye/ar from the Village's budget for this maintenance. Mr. Davison said monies budgeted previously
were cut from $700 to $400, and they would like to see $200 rein- stated for the Opera House Park's maintenance.
Council asked Manager Plunkett to add this request to the pro- posed budget and will be considered when reviewing the budget.

Discussion: Mr. James King, attorney, spoke in behalf of his
client and father, William King, who is one of the Burtridge residents
who paid $678, for the installation of water lines to the Burtridge
Subdivision, and who would now like to tap into the Village's water
system. Mr. King contended that an agreement was made with some of
the Burtridge residents and the Village sometime in the year 1972,
with each of them paying $678.00 for the line installation and $75.00
tap fee. Mr. King said he would like this agreement honored.
During discussion, members were curious as to how the $75.00 per
tap on fee came about when Villagerd. at the same time were paying
375p/er tap on fee. Mr. King said others have been questioned but
none could seem to remember why the tap fee was $75.00. He talked
with Don Miller who got people together and made a proposal to
Council at that time, and all he could figure out was perhaps the
Village at the time wanted more water customers, and a proposal was
made. Four remain that did not tap on, others tapped on at different
Law Director Drake commented that he has read over the mintues
of that period and found no evidence as to why the $75.00 per tap fee
was offered. Mr. Drake felt that Council accepted these people's
proposal at that time and that says it all. Mr. Drake said he would
not attempt to put a deadline date on tapping into the Villagd's water
With no further discussion offered at this time the motion for
passage carried. Resolution No. 85-25 duly passed.
Both Mr. William King and Mr. James King thanked Council.

During discussion, Village Law Director Robert Drake, stated that
he had not had a chance to review the proposed lease agreement at
length. He did have a few questions with regard to the agreement with
regard to liability insurance on the fire station itself. Consensus
of members following discussion was that the Village Law Director and
Manager Plunkett would work out the lease agreement to include the

7:00 p.m..
Councilmember Schnaidmt/entioned that a number of years ago the Fire Department water tankh*ad some problems, and this was resolved by fiberglassing the inside of the tank. This reconditioning Mr. Schnaidt said, lasted a long time. He wondered if this type of process would work on the Village's aging water tower tank.
Councilmember Eisenberg remarked that it sounded quite logical. The Village Manager said he would check into this and see if such a pro- cess would be feasible on the water tank.
