Property owners on several village streets will be assessed the costs of replacing sanitary sewer laterals from the main sewer line to the property line as part of the village sewer project this year.
Owners in the 4800 and 4900 blocks of North Oakland and 5600 block of North Bay Ridge avenues, the 5500 block of North Diversey Boulevard, the 600 to 800 block of North Beaumont Avenue and the 4700, 4800 and 4900 blocks of Newhall Avenue will pay the costs of replacing those laterals pending a public hearing on the assessments on Aug. 3.
The village engineer has the authority to waive the replacement lateral if it has been replaced in recent years but Village Engineer Dan Naze said most of the laterals in question were installed in the 1930s and are believed to be clap pipes in poor condition.
The typical assessment is $2,700 paying in cash on or before Nov. 15, or in seven equal installments with a 5 percent interest rate and a minimum payment of $500.
