Lanesboro City Council Report

City and county far apart on Coffee Street costsBy John TorgrimsonMonday, June 11, 2001

At its May 22 council meeting, the Lanesboro City Council expressed surprise at the citys estimated share of costs for the countys Coffee Street Road project. What the city thought would be a $40,000 to $50,000 price tag more than doubled with an estimated expense of nearly $125,000.

The entire county road project will cost nearly $1 million. The citys share includes:

Street work $11,138.20
Storm Sewer $58,345.80
Street Lights $14,682.50
Utilities $21,080.00
Engineering $18,500.00
Total $123,746.50

There are other assorted costs to the city including land purchases, permits and legal fees.

Over the past few weeks, City Attorney Tom Manion and City Administrator Barbara Hoyhtya have been trying to find out why there is such a discrepancy between the citys expectation and reality. Hoyhtya looked through old city council and public utilities commission minutes to find out what the city had agreed to in the past. The two also met with Fillmore County Commissioners Randal Dahl and Duane Bakke as well as Assistant County Engineer Tom Miles regarding the project.

Both Dahl and Bakke attended the Monday, June 4 city council meeting to answer any questions the council might have.

Manion told the council that he had some concerns about the citys proposed share as the council records indicated that the city had agreed to only cover the costs of storm sewers, as well as 20% of the engineering costs.

At that time, (1997) it was a $400,000 project with the citys cost share on storm sewers estimated at $50,000, Manion said.

Commissioner Dahl suggested that one alternative would be for the city to assess property owners who would benefit from the project. But Manion countered by saying that the home owners havent really had any problems. Manion said that it was his understanding that they were doing the storm sewers because while you are tearing up the road you might as well replace the storm sewers.

It is not something the city requested to have done, Manion pointed out.

Commissioner Bakke took a different view. It was his opinion that if it wasnt for the storm sewers, the road wouldnt be done at all.

Mayor John Brose then commented that the reason the road project was considered in the first place was because of traffic problems at the Lanesboro .....
