Harmony discusses projects


Mon, Jan 18th, 2010
Posted in Government

A public hearing was held before the Harmony City Council meeting on January 12. Several residents who have property adjacent to 3rd St. SW in Harmony were in attendance to discuss the upcoming street repairs and assessments.

Brett Grabau, the engineer from Bonestroo, explained the project to the audience and the two options from which the council had to choose. He also mentioned that the sanitary sewer on that street has not been televised yet, and they do not know for sure if it will need to be replaced, or how much will need to be replaced. He added that they are assuming there will be multiple issues.

The first option for the street is a complete reconstruction. This will replace curb and gutter, remove the sidewalk, and make the street one uniform width of 32 feet. Right now the street goes from 28 feet wide on some spots to 44 feet on another. This option has an estimated cost of $377,286.69.

The second option is to salvage what curb and gutter they can and patch the street. There will still be water and sewer main costs. The estimate for this option is $321,987.60.

Buzz and Nancy O'Connor asked if the curb and gutter would be replaced if it was still in good shape. Grabau said that in order to realign the roadway and make the corridor uniform, it would be best to replace the whole thing. They also mentioned that years ago the city allowed semis to drive up that street to park in what is now the Community Center parking lot. He said those trucks busted up the road after years of doing that.

Grabau said when the damage is just from overload, what they usually see is just deteriorating blacktop, although the trucks probably did do some of the damage. He added that in the future, heavy trucks will not be allowed on the streets.

Keith MacIntosh said he would prefer the city not replace the sidewalks. Grabau said the feasibility report included removing the sidewalks, but not replacing them. It was up to the city whether or not they would like to do that. City Administrator Jerome Illg said they had looked into the cost of a new sidewalk, and it was around $17,000.

MaryAnn Johnson said if they widen the street where she lives, she will lose some of her yard. What concerned her was a utility pole on the corner, and that it not be any closer to her house. Illg said she has a right to not have the pole on her property, and it was something they would have to look at.
