<br /> Mrs. Mary Ann Steadman, representing a group of residents from
<br /> E. Royal Street, addressed Council concerning a petition requesting
<br /> the resurfacing of East Royal Street, the possibility of a sidewalk
<br /> and resurfacing of a side road between E. Royal Street and E. Loudoun
<br /> Streets, sweeping and snow-removal . Mrs. Betty Anne Lemarr reported
<br /> that town crews had started a changeover in the sewer lines at her
<br /> residence some 18 months to two years ago. They have never re-
<br /> turned to complete this job and there is still an open hole on
<br /> her property. Mr. Niccolls reported that inspections were made
<br /> on September 21st. East Royal Street could be added to the cur-
<br /> y) rent resurfacingprogram at an estimated cost of $1 , 500, this be-
<br /> ,.l ing within the 60 , 000 allocated for repaving this year. The con-
<br /> tractor will be instructed to overlay this street as requested.
<br /> Sidewalk, curb and gutter on one side would approach $10, 000 and
<br /> will be considered at another time. The so-called "side road"
<br /> is not a public right-of-way, but is basically a private driveway.
<br /> The Town Attorney could be instructed to investigate the owner-
<br /> ship of this property. Street sweeping is of little value for
<br /> streets without curb and gutter, but resurfacing will make it
<br /> largely self-cleaning. Snow and ice control will be intensified
<br /> on this street due to the grade of the street and its residential
<br /> character.
<br /> 76-151 - Resolution - Authorizing a contract for office equipment
<br /> and making an appropriation.
