(5.8)  Mr. Bassett stated the City has received the appraisals for the
special assessments on Improvement No's. 83056, Pohl Road, 84005, North
Riverfront Drive, and 89029, Range Street.  He stated for Improvement No.
84005, staff had received written objections and notice of appeals from two
property owners regarding their opposition to the inclusion of sidewalks in
the improvement project.  The appraiser found a benefit to each property that
exceeded the assessment for those properties.  He was not able to make a
separate determination of the amount of benefit attributable to the sidewalk
only.  A pre-trial for this matter is scheduled for September 20, 1990.  The
City Attorney recommends that the City proceed to trial on this matter.
   He stated for Improvement No. 83056, staff received written objections
and notice of appeal from a property owner who owns 36.95 acres of
undeveloped land on Pohl Road.  The City has agreed to defer the sewer and
water assessments amounting to $75,666.83 until the property is developed,
but seeks to collect the assessment for the street construction in the amount
of $24,900.  The appraiser found that the street construction had a net
benefit to the property of $3,500, significantly less than the assessment
amount.  The City Attorney recommends that the Council authorize her to
negotiate a stipulation with the property owner, through her attorney, that
wherein the City agrees to defer the sewer and water assessment of $75,666.83
until the property is developed without interest accruing, and that the City
would reduce the assessment for the street to $3,500.  A pre-trial for this
matter is scheduled for September 24, 1990.
   He stated for Improvement No. 89029, the property owner objected to the
storm drainage.  The appraiser concluded the benefit from the project
exceeded the assessment amount.  The City Attorney recommends that the
Council approve the resolution adopting the assessment roll for this project,
and the City proceed to collect the assessment.
   Following Council discussion, Ms. Sheran moved and Mr. Faust seconded a
motion to have the City Attorney negotiate a stipulation with the property
owner's attorney for Improvement No. 83056 and defer the sewer and water
assessment of $75,666.83 until the property is developed without interest
accruing and reduce the street assessment to $3,500.  With all members voting
in favor, the motion carried.
   Ms. Sheran moved and Mr. Davis seconded a motion to adopt a Resolution
Adopting Assessment for Improvement No. 89029.  With all members voting in
favor, the motion carried.

collected, and park improvements paid from park development fund.  
   Following a brief discussion, Mr. Knapp moved and Mr. Faust seconded a
motion to adopt the Resolution.  With all members voting in favor, the motion
carried.

(5.11)  Mr. Bassett reported on staff's request to proceed with retaining
Barbarossa Blasting to drill and shoot bedrock in the vicinity of the
contaminated soil uncovered on Broad Street between Lime and Thompson
Streets.  He stated when the fuel oil products were discovered in the rock
strata under Broad Street, Peterson Excavating's subcontractor, Mankato
Aglime, pulled off the job since they were not experienced in drilling oil
contaminated bedrock.  Therefore, staff contacted and received a proposal
from Barbarossa Blasting to do the job.  He stated the unit cost from
Barbarossa Blasting will not exceed Peterson Excavating's bid price.

(5.12)  Mr. Bassett requested the Council set August 27, 1990 as date of

appear before the Council regarding a drainage problem in front of his
residence.
   Mr. Busch stated over a period of years, his boulevard has worked out to
the road, therefore, water collects in front of his residence.  He stated he
would like to put in a new overlay driveway and remove the boulevard which
has grown out and put in some blacktop.  He stated he has received two
private estimates for this work.  Mr. McLaughlin stated he has talked to
staff about Mr. Busch's problem, and what's unique about his situation is
that curb and gutter would correct the situation.
   Mr. McLaughlin then moved and Mr. Kennedy seconded a motion to accept the
low quote of W.W. Blacktopping in the amount of $290 to correct the drainage
problem in front of his residence.  This work would be performed by City
staff or a private contractor.  With all members voting against the motion
except for McLaughlin and Kennedy, the motion failed.
   Mr. Davis moved and Ms. Sheran seconded a motion to reconsider the
previous motion.  With all members voting in favor, the motion carried.

seconded a motion to set August 27, 1990 as date of hearing for the Small

regarding a proposal to take over the parking system.  He stated an outside
consultant will make a determination as to how much depreciation money must
be set aside.  He stated they would like to start a corporation which will
have a board of directors, and they would serve voluntarily without pay. 
They intend to retain all the current contracts the City has with the system
and take over the system by October 1, 1990.  The City would retain ownership

   Mr. Bassett stated at the public hearing held by the Zoning
Administrator, the neighborhood residents in attendance expressed two
principal concerns.  The first was aesthetics.  They felt that the loss of
the wooded area and wildlife habitat would be a loss for the entire
neighborhood.  They suggested that it could possibly be purchased by the City
for park purposes.  The second concern was the altering of drainage patterns. 
They said that in the past, storm water had flowed across the property, and
they thought that development might alter this pattern and affect their
property.  Staff later spoke with the City Engineer about the sanitary sewer
line and storm drainage.  The City Engineer stated the 18 inch sanitary line
traversing the property is a principal sanitary sewer for West Mankato.  The
storm drainage line was abandoned in 1985 when the City built a new storm
drainage system for the area.  He stated the new storm drainage system was
adequate to meet the needs of the neighborhood.  The possibility of
purchasing the parcel for use as a neighborhood park was discussed with the
Parks Director, and the director stated it was not needed since a park
already exists in the neighborhood on Blue Earth Street.
   Mayor Carstensen opened the public hearing for testimony.
   Steve Quade, 110 Morningside Heights, stated he lives adjacent to the
proposed development.  When they purchased their property, their intent was
to try and purchase this property.  He stated there's an easement concern,
and he hopes that the Council doesn't approve the proposed setback.  
   Mark Leiferman, 320 Jamaica Drive, stated he is a member of Winona Street
Associates, and they feel this is where a variance is warranted.  He stated
it is a very attractive setting along the wooded area, and they desire to
have their request approved.
   There being no one else wishing to appear before the Council to give
testimony, Mayor Carstensen declared the public hearing closed.
   Following a brief discussion, Mr. Kennedy moved and Mr. Knapp seconded a
