Lanesboro discusses storm sewer


Fri, Sep 14th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Government

Dillon Dombrovski of Yaggy Colby and Associates was at the Lanesboro City Council meeting on September 10 to discuss a few different issues. There was discussion about the storm sewer line that goes under the Riverside on the Root restaurant. At a previous meeting the council had decided to look into the cost of lining the pipes versus the cost of rerouting the lines to go a different way and bypass the restaurant.

Dombrovski said the quote for lining the pipes was $43,000. The cost of rerouting the line is $51,000. That cost does not include the price of surveying, which could be an additional $2,500-$3,000.

Dombrovski added that the state is not willing to help out with the cost, as there is little drainage from the state highway going into those lines.

Council member Joe O’Connor was taking the place of Mayor Steve Rahn, who was absent. He noted that he doesn’t normally like to spend an extra $12,000, but it might be a better long-term approach. New sewer lines could last 50-75 years, according to Dombrovski, but lining would not last as long.

There was a question about using assessments to help pay for the cost. City Attorney Tom Manion said they could argue that rerouting would benefit the property, as they would be plugging up and closing the storm sewer line under the restaurant. O’Connor said they have already set a precedent for assessing storm sewer.

The council approved going ahead with a feasibility study on the project. Dombrovski said this would be a spring project, as they will have to have a public hearing and go through all the necessary steps in the assessment policy. They will also have to get approval for the project from MNDot and the DNR.

There was also some discussion about the campground street. Dombrovski said he met with Andy Drake about the road improvements needed there, and they looked at the community center parking lot as well.

O’Connor was hesitant about going forward with any project there, as he felt the cost would be too high. Council member Ceil Allen said, “It is a problem and it needs to be dealt with at some time, but there are a lot of others. We need to prioritize.”

The council approved the payment for the storm sewer repair. The city part of the cost was $2,250 to Blitz Construction.
