Title: To grant the Director of the Department of Public Service the authority to execute, on behalf of the City, as the Grantee, new agreements/easements obtained from the State of Ohio and/or The Ohio State University.
Explanation

BACKGROUND:

The City of Columbus Department of Public Service (DPS) regularly acquires property interest involving real property owned by the State of Ohio and/or The Ohio State University for various uses including, but not limited to, sidewalks, ADA ramps, roadways, shared use paths, traffic signals, utilities and appurtenances thereto. It is the policy and practice of the State of Ohio, acting through the Department of Administrative Services, that such agreements/easements be signed by the Grantee for purposes of accepting the terms therein. Additionally, by State statute, the interests are limited to 15-year or 25-year terms. Because the agreements expire, it becomes necessary to renew them or obtain new agreements/easements. Council previously passed Ordinance 1554-2010, wherein the Director of the Department of Public Service (DPS) was granted authority to execute, on behalf of the City, all renewal easements between the City and the State of Ohio and/or The Ohio State University, provided they were approved as to form or prepared by the City Attorney’s Office, Real Estate Division. The purpose of this Ordinance is to expand that authority to further allow for the Director of DPS to execute, on behalf of the City of Columbus, new agreements/easements between the City and the State of Ohio and/or The Ohio State University, provided they are approved by the City Attorney’s Office, Real Estate Division.
