BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that special benefit assessments for the cost remaining after the contribution from the District to those properties benefiting from such improvement be levied against all land in the above described Subdistrict, whether public or private, in the proportion that each such lot or parcel of land bears to the entire benefited area of such Subdistrict, exclusive of streets, roads and alleys. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a public hearing be held within said Subdistrict 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 determine, 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 3 within The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District not less than ten days in advance of the date of such hearing. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED at such public hearing those persons owning real property within such Subdistrict be informed that the District will encourage them to make the improvement by private means, as it is generally recognized that there can be a saving over some of the necessary costs of tax bills; that such methods and procedures be given to them, and that they be told that the District will proceed in its usual manner toward having the sewers constructed by the tax bill method, but that if before such contract for construction is advertised, the construction is being done by private means then, of course, the District will refrain from proceeding. The foregoing Resolution was adopted March 8, 2001.
