File #: 1023-2019    Version: 1
Type: Ordinance Status: Passed
File created: 4/4/2019 In control: Public Utilities Committee
On agenda: 5/6/2019 Final action: 5/9/2019
Title: To authorize the Director of the Department of Public Utilities to execute those document(s) necessary to consent to American Electric Power Company, Inc. easements in connection to the Blacklick Creek Sanitary Interceptor Sewer project; and to declare an emergency. ($0.00)

Background: The City possesses title to two sanitary sewer easements described and recorded in Instrument numbers 201412050161693 and 201412050161695, Recorder’s Office, Franklin County, Ohio (“Easement”). The Easement burdens real property located in the vicinity of 3345 Reynoldsburg New Albany Road, Jefferson Township, Ohio 44047 {Franklin County Tax Parcel 170-000469} (“Servient Estate”) currently owned by The New Albany Company, LLC, (“New Albany”). As part of the City’s Blacklick Creek Sanitary Interceptor Sewer project, American Electric Power Company, Inc. (“AEP”) agreed to temporarily relocate its electric lines out of existing AEP easements, Instrument Numbers 201006250080250 and 201007290096657, Recorder’s Office, Franklin County, Ohio, which predate the City’s Easement, in order to allow the City’s project to be constructed. AEP and New Albany now desire to enter into new easement(s) to allow the relocated electric lines to remain in their current location rather than move them back to the original easement area. Two of the new AEP easements cross the City’s Easement and AEP is now requesting that the City sign a Consent and Acknowledgement consenting to the new AEP easements. The Department of Public Utilities has reviewed the request and determined that it is in the best interest of the City for the relocated electric lines to remain in their current location and to sign the Consent and Acknowledgment, provided that AEP releases the portions of AEP’s original easement that are no longer needed.
This ordinance authorizes the Director of DPU to sign any documents, as approved by the City Attorney, necessary to consent to the new AEP Easements.
Fiscal Impact: Not Applicable

Emergency Justification: Emergency action is requested so that the easements can be granted to insure that the relocated electric lines will remain in their current location, which will preserve the public peace, property, health, welfare, and safety.
