Explanation
1. BACKGROUND
This legislation authorizes payment for utility relocation work by American Electric Power, Columbia Gas of Ohio, Marathon Pipeline, and other utilities as needed in an amount up to $2,000,000.00.

The Public Service Department is engaged in the Arterial Street Rehabilitation - Hamilton Road - 161 to Morse Road - Phase A project. Project work includes widening Hamilton Road to provide an additional through lane in each direction between Morse Road and Preserve Crossing. Morse Road between Hamilton and Trellis will also be improved to include a center turn lane. Project improvements include curb, gutter, storm sewer, sidewalk, street lighting, traffic control devices and street trees.

In the course of effecting roadway improvements, it is sometimes necessary to force the relocation of utilities from privately held easements or place overhead utilities underground to promote public health, safety and welfare, including the economic development of the City. It is necessary to relocate utilities to complete this project. This funding request for utilities relocation reimbursement is based upon estimates from the utilities. The utilities will invoice the City for actual costs incurred in relocating the utilities. The amount needed may exceed the amount requested in this ordinance. Additional legislation will be submitted by the Department of Public Service if additional funds are needed to complete the relocations.
