RESOLUTION AMENDING RESOLUTION 00-0247 ORDERING THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE 2001 STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM PURSUANT TO SECTION 61(B) OF THE HOME RULE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF DULUTH, TO INCREASE THE AMOUNT BY $160,000 FOR ADDING IMPROVEMENTS TO VALLEY DRIVE FROM CENTER OF SECTION 12 TO OXFORD STREET.

BY COUNCILOR STOVER:

RESOLVED, that Resolution 00-0247 ordering the improvement of the 2001 street improvement program, be amended to increase the amount by $160,000 for a new total of $5,660,000 for the improvement to Valley Drive from center of Section 12 to Oxford Street; payable from the Street Improvement Fund 440.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The improvement of Valley Drive was petitioned by 91.95% of the abutting property owners. The special assessment board recommends adding this to the 2001 street improvement project as this is an existing street in poor condition with drainage problems that should be corrected. All of the abutting lots are now built on.
