Angry Citizens Protest Ditcli In Subdivision at Brighton BRIGHTON — Angry residents of the Twin Acres subdivision appeared at the Village board meeting Monday night to protest a deep drainage ditch tear the line of property owned by James C. Jones. Jones stated that the ditch is within six feet of his house. According to spokesmen for the group who presented the petition, the ditch is on property owned by Gene St. Cin, real estate man and developer. The residents are fearful for the safety of children in the area since water stands to a depth sufficient to drown a person. Jones is also concerned about the effects this may have upon the value of his property as well as the value of all property in the subdivision. , The ditch apparently has been dug to divert drainage around the St. Cin property. Merle Bassett, village attorn ey, advised the board that this is a matter between St. Cin and the affected property owners. The petition of Dwight Sumner for water and sewer service to a lot at 119 Walnut St., tvas deired under provisions of) he subdivision control ordinance. Sumner said he had lurchasPd the lot from Jersey State Brink and was not inform- d that the subdivision did not meet standards set up in the ordinance. The bank was notified in August of 1965 by the board of the provisions of the ordinance arid has failed to take steps to comply. Sumner was advised to seek recourse from Jersey State Bank. A $32,010 tax levy ordinance was passed. It was noted that Jie corporate levy is down due to the increase in assessed valuation from $2.7 million to well over $3 million. The water department report showed a net gain of $3,261 with service now being furnished to 1,021 customers. It was also reported that two additional pumps of the suction type will be purchased and installed in small'building to alleviate flooding problems in some areas of the village. TEES. & WED.
