The City owns real property located in the vicinity of Dustin Road, Galena, Ohio 43021 {Delaware County Tax Parcel 417-430-07-010-000} commonly known as Hoover Reservoir (“Hoover”), which is managed by the Department of Finance & Management (“Finance”) in conjunction with the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department (“CRPD”)  and the Department of Public Utilities (“DPU”).  The Village of Galena (“Galena”) is a partner with the City in developing the Hoover/Westerville/Columbus /Galena/Sunbury multi use trail (“Trail’).  A portion of Galena’s connector impacts City property at Hoover and Galena now requests that the City grant them an easement to install, operate, and maintain the Trail.  The Easement area impacts a 0.063 acre tract of City property which is more fully described in the attached two (2) page Exhibit A.

 

The Departments of Finance, Recreation and Parks, and Public utilities have all reviewed this matter and support granting the 0.063 acre Easement to Galena at no cost. Accordingly, this ordinance authorizes the director of Finance, on behalf of the City, to execute and acknowledge any necessary instrument(s), as approved by the City Attorney, in order to quit claim grant the Easement to Galena.
