BOARD OF EQUALIZATION FOR 2002 PART IV, 2004 PART II AND 2004 PART III IMPROVEMENTS

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter opened the public hearing for the Council to meet as a Board of Equalization to assess costs for 2002 Part IV Improvements consisting of Paving Improvement District No. 2001-858 for the alley between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue from 15th Street to 16th Street, Paving Improvement District No. 2002-869 for the alley between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue from 21st Street to North Railroad Street; AND 2004 Part II Improvements consisting of Paving Improvement District No. 2003-871 for an alley between Central Avenue and 1st Avenue from 24th Street to 25th Street; Paving Improvement District No. 2003-877 for 17th Avenue from 14th Street, north a distance of 137± feet north of 15th Street Place; Paving Improvement District No. 2003-878 for 14th Street from 17th Avenue, east a distance of 115± feet east of 17th Avenue; Paving Improvement District No. 2003-879 for 15th Street Place from 17th Avenue, west to its terminus in a cul-de-sac; Water District No. 2003-527 for 17th Avenue from 14th Street, north a distance of 137± feet north of 15th Street Place AND 14th Street from 17th Avenue, east a distance of 115± feet east of 17th Avenue; Water District No. 2003-528 for 15th Street Place from 17th Avenue, west to its terminus in a cul-de-sac; Sewer District No. 2003-469 for 17th Avenue from 14th Street, north a distance of 137± feet north of 15th Street Place; and Sewer District No. 2003-470 for 15th Street Place from 17th Avenue, west to its terminus in a cul-de-sac; AND 2004 Part III Improvements consisting of Paving Improvement District No. 2004-880 for LaPlatte Road from Meadow Lane to approximately 160 feet south of Redwood Lane, Water District No. 2004-529 for LaPlatte Road from Meadow Lane to Plaza Boulevard, and Sewer District No. 2004-471 or LaPlatte Road from Meadow Lane to approximately 160 feet south of Redwood Lane and to consider approval of Resolution No. 2005-76.

 

After completion of the construction projects, the City hired a title company to complete property abstracts so that assessments could be levied. The schedules of the assessments which will be levied for the various districts were previously given to the Council. These districts have been completed and, in order to satisfy state law, when paving, water and sewer districts are completed, the City Council must act as a Board of Equalization to levy assessments on properties so benefited. Property owners will then be required to pay the first installment within 50 days (July 13, 2005) or will be able to pay the entire assessment without any interest prior to this date. The City will recoup the costs associated with the construction of paving and improving the streets within such Paving Districts, except the cost of paving and improving the intersections of streets or avenues and spaces opposite alleys in such Paving Districts and will recoup the cost of installation of mains in said Water and Sewer Districts.

 

There was no one present in opposition to this hearing.

 

Kris Pedersen, 3 Meadow Lane, addressed the Council. He wanted an explanation as to how the City assesses this. Finance Director Wendell Wessels stated that with paving districts, they are assessed over ten years. The first payment is due within 50 days at no interest; then the remainder payments are due May 24th of each year thereafter. The interest rate is six percent. If any payment becomes delinquent, the interest rate is 14 percent.

 

Moved by Kearney seconded by Clouse to close the hearing as the Board of Equalization and to approve assessing costs for 2002 Part IV Improvements consisting of Paving Improvement District No. 2001-858 for the alley between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue from 15th Street to 16th Street, Paving Improvement District No. 2002-869 for the alley between 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue from 21st Street to North Railroad Street; AND 2004 Part II Improvements consisting of Paving Improvement District No. 2003-871 for an alley between Central Avenue and 1st Avenue from 24th Street to 25th Street; Paving Improvement District No. 2003-877 for 17th Avenue from 14th Street, north a distance of 137± feet north of 15th Street Place; Paving Improvement District No. 2003-878 for 14th Street from 17th Avenue, east a distance of 115± feet east of 17th Avenue; Paving Improvement District No. 2003-879 for 15th Street Place from 17th Avenue, west to its terminus in a cul-de-sac; Water District No. 2003-527 for 17th Avenue from 14th Street, north a distance of 137± feet north of 15th Street Place AND 14th Street from 17th Avenue, east a distance of 115± feet east of 17th Avenue; Water District No. 2003-528 for 15th Street Place from 17th Avenue, west to its terminus in a cul-de-sac; Sewer District No. 2003-469 for 17th Avenue from 14th Street, north a distance of 137± feet north of 15th Street Place; and Sewer District No. 2003-470 for 15th Street Place from 17th Avenue, west to its terminus in a cul-de-sac; AND 2004 Part III Improvements consisting of Paving Improvement District No. 2004-880 for LaPlatte Road from Meadow Lane to approximately 160 feet south of Redwood Lane, Water District No. 2004-529 for LaPlatte Road from Meadow Lane to Plaza Boulevard, and Sewer District No. 2004-471 or LaPlatte Road from Meadow Lane to approximately 160 feet south of Redwood Lane and approve Resolution No. 2005-76.
