Explanation
1. BACKGROUND:
In 1965, pursuant to Ordinance 1594-65, the City of Columbus vacated a portion of an alley the alley ran between Hawthorne Avenue and Phale D Hale Drive and reserved a utility easement for existing utilities. The Department of Public Service recently received a request from the Ohio State University, asking that the City release the reserved easement over this area to clear title for this site. After receipt of this request the Department of Public Service Division of Infrastructure Management verified with all the public and private utility companies that there are no public utilities or need for this easement, located within the requested area and that they have no objections to this portion of the easement being released. The following legislation authorizes the Director of the Department of Public Service to execute those documents necessary to release the portions of easement described below and attached exhibit to allow the area to clear title for this site.

2. Fiscal Impact
The City will receive a total of $500.00, to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650 for releasing of the easement so the property can be clear title.

3. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION
Emergency action is requested in order to allow for the timely release of certain easement rights which will allow development on the site to occur without unnecessary delay, which will preserve the public peace, health, property, safety, and welfare.
