R1009 R E S O L U T I O N NO. 1009 WHEREAS, lot owners in an area tributary to Gravois Creek have requested the construction of a public sanitary sewer, identified as the Mount Hope Outfall Sanitary Interceptor Sewer, to be laid along Lemay Ferry Road between Alleghany and Karlsruhe Drives and then west through Mount Hope and Oakdale Cemeteries to the point of connection to the Gravois Creek Trunk Sewer, and WHEREAS, the requested sewer will provide a sewer outlet for a substantial area presently served by community septic tanks, and will relieve a recognized unhealthful situation, and WHEREAS, the construction of this interceptor sewer will enable the District to abandon these community treatment plants which are inadequate and are creating a health hazard, and WHEREAS, The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District is applying for a State of Missouri and a Federal Grant to abate this pollution caused by these inadequate treatment facilities, and WHEREAS, a group of lot owners has offered to pay pro rata a portion of the cost of constructing the proposed sewer either in advance or as their respective properties become served by it, NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE METROPOLITAN ST. LOUIS SEWER DISTRICT: 1. That construction of the aforesaid sewer is necessary for the protection of the public health. 2. That such sewer shall be designed as a collecting and outfall sanitary sewer of size and capacity to serve the local watershed tributary to it. 3. That all costs necessary or incidental to the sewer construction, the bypassing of septic tanks, are estimated to be Fifty-five Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($55,000.00), and probably will not exceed that amount if construction is started promptly. 4. That the entire cost of construction shall be advanced from the Operating Funds of the Gravois Creek Trunk Subdistrict and that any offsetting payments of lot owners or any State of Missouri or Federal Grants shall be returned as received to said Operating Funds. 5. That a public hearing be held within the drainage area of said proposed sewer to afford all persons interested in said improvement an opportunity to be heard; that such hearing shall be held at such time and place as the Executive Director shall fix, but not less than ten nor more than thirty days after the adoption of this Resolution; and that notice of such hearing shall be given by the publication of notice in at least one issue of a newspaper of general circulation within The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District not less than ten days in advance of the date of such hearing. The foregoing Resolution was adopted September 26, 1968.
