Explanation

 

BACKGROUND:     

 

The City possesses title to a sanitary sewer easement described and recorded in Instrument Number 200403040047956, Recorder’s Office, Franklin County, Ohio (“Easement”). The Easement burdens real property located along Civitas Ave., Columbus, OH 43215 {Franklin County Tax Parcels 010-293345 and 010-293348} (“Servient Estate”) currently owned by The Jeffrey Place New Community Authority, a body corporate and politic and performing essential governmental function of the State of Ohio, duly created and existing under and by virtue of Chapter 349 of the Ohio Revised Code, and Jeffrey New Day LLC, an Ohio limited liability company. The City’s Department of Public Utilities (DPU) has reviewed the request by the property owners to vacate the existing easement and determined that the sewer was relocated under CC 17003 (now Record Plan 17951 -17954) and recorded in Instrument Numbers 201601290011925 and 201601290011926. DPU has determined that terminating a portion of the City’s rights to the Easement does not adversely affect the City and should be granted at no monetary cost.
