(VOTE: 5 - “AYES”) CARRIED
1. Resolution Approving Preliminary Plat of Hueholt Subdivision
DISCUSSION: The City Planner stated that Steve and Kathy Whitmore have requested approval of the preliminary plat for Hueholt Subdivision, an approximately 12.5 acre, 16-lot subdivision located north of Sunnyside Avenue, between Yoder Drive and Edgewood Place. He stated that the Plan Commission voted to conditionally accept the preliminary plat with the following four conditions: staff conditions and comments as stated in staff recommendations; City is to study the areas adjacent to Hueholt Subdivision, including areas along Sunnyside Avenue and Edgewood Place, to assess if sanitary/storm water is a problem (particularly concerning backflow into individual’s homes); sanitary/storm water from Hueholt Subdivision should not adversely affect or contribute to the problem of sanitary/storm water backflow into neighboring properties; and the street name for Hueholt Subdivision (Diamond Ridge) should end in a descriptive term (i.e. place, court, drive, road, lane, boulevard, etc.). The Public Works Director reviewed the initial report and investigation by the Public Works Department with Council and the viewing audience. He stated that in investigating the system in 2002 due to problems in the area, several vented man-holes and several houses with downspouts going directly into the sanitary sewer system was discovered. He stated the manholes were corrected and the downspouts were removed and once a month the sewer is jetted. He stated that the proposed development will contribute 16 gallons per minute to the sanitary sewer system which is fairly low. He stated that he was not aware if there was still a problem in the area or not, but the next step would be to do a house to house investigation to see if there were any sump pumps going directly into the sanitary sewer. Those who spoke were as follows: Darwin Pepper of 2913 Sunnyside, Dianna Murray of 2929 Sunnyside, Peter Schulte of 2920 Sunnyside, Pat Woodside of 2907 Sunnyside and Joe Schier of 3 Edgewood Place. Many of those who spoke stated that they were not against the proposed subdivision, but were concerned with the effect the subdivision may have on the current sewer system. They also stated that they have not had any problems since 2002, but there have not been heavy rains since 2002. Those who live in Edgewood Place have still been experiencing sewer problems. After considerable discussion, it was the consensus of the City Council to have the City Inspectors do a house by house investigation of sump pumps to see if any were going directly into the sanitary sewer system. All present had opportunity to speak and nothing additional was filed in the office of the City Clerk.
