...EXPLANATION

BACKGROUND:

The City’s Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is engaged in the Big Run/Hellbranch Sewer Extension (CIP 650604-100001) Public Improvement Project (“Public Project”). The City must acquire in good faith and accept certain fee simple title and lesser real property interests located in the vicinity of Sullivant Avenue and Galloway Road, Galloway, Ohio 43119 (collectively, “Real Estate”) in order for DPU to complete the Public Project. The City passed Ordinance Number 1066-2016 authorizing the City Attorney to acquire the Real Estate. Furthermore, the City also adopted Resolution 0046X-2017 declaring the City’s (i) public purpose and necessity of the Public Project, and (ii) intent to appropriate the Real Estate. The City’s acquisition of the Real Estate will help make, improve, or repair certain portions of the sewer infrastructure in the vicinity of Sullivant Avenue and Galloway Road.

The City Attorney, pursuant to Columbus City Code, Section 909.03, served notice to all of the owners of the Real Estate of the (i) Public Project’s public purpose and necessity, and (ii) adoption of Resolution 0046X-2017. However, the City Attorney was unable to either locate some of the Real Estate’s owner(s) or agree with some of the Real Estate’s owner(s) in good faith regarding the amount of just compensation.
