Assessments against private property owners for all but two of the "phases" involved in expansion of city sewers have now been cleared by the courts, Alton public works director Ralph Wandling told the Telegraph in a status report this week on the sewer work. Total cost of the six projects is around $2.2 million, according to assistant city engineer James Fallon. This includes land acquisition, design and field engineering fees based on the total contract cost and inspection fees, Fallon said. A total of 2,250 pieces of property will be served by the six sewer projects, four of which have been completed. T h i s includes, however, Fallon said, vacant lots whicii are "buildable" and in a few cases could be subdivided.

The Condit-Agnes area is west of Main street and south of Sanford. Wandling said that assessments against individual property owners ranged from about $550 to around $700. Fallon said the assessments depended on the "original cost estimates laid off against the number of property owners" in the project areas. The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is financing about 25 per cent of the cost of the sewer expansion, Wandling said. The court battles over individual assessments against property owners has resulted in escalated costs of (he sewer work since the original cost estimates were made. The property assessments however are "frozen" by Hie court and 'do not meet the higher costs which will have to be borne in some way by Hie taxpayers at largo. Wandling pointed out. Both Wandling and Fal'ou said that the sewers were a ••tremendous bargain" to ;he property owners getting the city service for the first Unit.-.
