Lanesboro City Council approves partial street vacation


Fri, Oct 5th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Government

A public hearing was held before the regular Lanesboro City Council meeting on October 1 regarding the request by Rick and Cheryl Lamon for the city to vacate a portion of Beacon Street.

The Lamons are planning on bringing in a building that is 28’ by 48’ and will be a duplex. Their request is to vacate the grassy area of the street to allow for entrance into the building.

From the middle of the street, 40 feet on each side belongs to the city. With the vacation of the portion requested, no changes will be made to the street at all. Rick Lamon said they are going to try to do something that fits in with the city and its historical aspect.

There was a question about snow removal, and Andy Drake said he does use part of the grass to pile the snow. He said it should work anyway, but he would like to see how the house would be sitting on the property.

There were some questions by community members at the meeting about why the vacation was needed, and how the house would be set. After the meeting, Lamon went with a couple of people to the site to show them how it was staked out.

The council approved the vacation with the conditions that if no improvements are made to the property in a year, it will go back to the city. Also, the city will retain easements for utilities and any possible sidewalks.

Storm sewer repair

There was more discussion about the storm sewer repairs that need to be done. The storm sewer line that goes under the Riverside on the Root restaurant needs to be repaired or they need to reroute the line to go a different way. The cost of relining the pipes was estimated at $43,000, where the cost to reroute, along with engineer costs, would be closer to $56,000. The council approved doing a feasibility study that will look at both options.

Vickerman said the project would be hard to assess to any property owners, as the water comes down from the hillside, and not from the property where repairs will be made.

“It’s something that has to be done, no matter what,” commented Mayor Steve Rahn.

Dam Update

Vickerman said of the $1.8 million needed for dam repairs, they have now raised or acquired $1.2 million. They were awarded $300,000 from the MN Historical Society, and the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) matched the city’s $450,000 plus another $450,000. They still have $600 .....
