Peterson approves County 25 agreement, ponders future of school

The city of Peterson continues preparations for the reconstruction project of County 25, scheduled to begin in 2015. A preliminary feasibility report gave the city a taste of project figures and requirements, but further analysis has provided better insight into the scope of the project, including what the county will fund and what will be solely city cost.

David Strauss, senior project engineer at SEH-Yaggy, was on hand at the Wednesday, August 13 city council meeting and presented a cooperative agreement between the county and city. “The project is progressing. This is my two cents on this agreement; everything appears to be in line.” Strauss also noted the biggest change to updating the feasibility report has been the addition of the formal assessment policy. Figures have been gradually adjusted as bid prices are coming in and funding options are being reviewed. As it currently stands, roughly $70,000 could be generated for the project by property owner assessment. Road, curb, and gutter are currently $6.54 per linear foot of property, while sidewalk rates are assessed at a different value. No assessments are being applied along the southern portion of the project, along Church Street, as there will be no curb and gutter, just roadway.

The water main upgrades under the Mill Street portion of the project will also see work while the roadway is disrupted. According to Strauss, service main to the property, is 100 percent assessable to the property, since it directly benefits it.

The only thing not currently figured into the report is any upgrades to roadway lighting that the city may want to make. The city has considered upgrading wiring and conduit to city lighting during the project. “This is a good opportunity for the community to do any replacement or updating of infrastructure when you can,” added Strauss. “My recommendation, if you find out Church Street water is under the roadway, this would be the time to do it so you don’t disrupt the roadway again.”

Sidewalks along Church Street are still one catch point in the project. The city has heard that sidewalks along the west side of the road, currently buried under inches of sod, will be replaced. However, Strauss noted that the county cannot proceed with sidewalk reconstruction on the street if the existing sidewalks reside within private property lines, as they currently appear to. “The base mapping is only approximate, but usua .....
