Lake Shore: Council tables action on Robinwood Way improvements
Council hears from residents both for and against project at public hearing.
The Lake Shore City Council will further research a proposed project to improve Robinwood Way after hearing from residents at a public hearing held online via Zoom on Monday, Aug. 24.
The public hearing was the next step in the process regarding the proposed project to improve the road between the intersection with Little John Road to the north of the city-maintained segment of Robinhood Way, or approximately 2,525 feet.
Estimated cost is $218,960. The city’s policy is to assess 60% of the total project cost to benefitted properties, or an estimated $131,000. The city would pay 40%, or an estimated $88,000. There would be 9.5 assessments.
After hearing comments both for and against the project, the council tabled any action so it can further discuss it.
The city had received a petition signed by more than 35% of property owners abutting the gravel road for the improvements.
Council member Doug Miller said that considering events going on nationwide, he supports the city’s police department and said Lake Shore is privileged to have a good police department. He praised Police Chief Steve Sundstrom and his department.
In his report, Sundstrom said police had 165 incidents in July, including 86 traffic-related incidents and 79 miscellaneous calls. Traffic incidents included 74 warnings, seven citations and one DWI arrest.
Miscellaneous calls included three suspicious activity, 10 disturbance complaints, two harassment complaints, two assault complaints, three damage to property and eight aquatic invasive species violations, among others
