File created: 11/20/2019 In control: Finance Committee
On agenda: 12/16/2019 Final action: 12/18/2019
Title: To authorize the director of the Department of Finance and Management, on behalf of the Department of Public Utilities, to execute a Temporary Construction Easement with Gianni Romanelli and Sara P. Romanelli in order to limit erosion and flooding in the vicinity of 8299 West Shore Drive, Westerville, Ohio. ($0.00)
Explanation

Background: It has been presented to the City by Gianni Romanelli and Sara P. Romanelli, the owners of 8299 West Shore Drive, Westerville, Ohio, being real property located adjacent to the Hoover Reservoir, that a need exists to protect their property due to the presence of a vertical surface of highly erodible soil. The Romanelli’s proposed erosion protection measures to the City, and they will obtain a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (if required) to allow the removal of the soil. As a result of the proposed excavation on the Romanelli’s property, certain soil and trees will need to be removed from the City’s property to prevent the remaining vertical soils from eroding and entering Hoover Reservoir. The Departments of Finance and Management, Recreation and Parks, and Public Utilities have determined that permitting certain temporary construction rights to allow the removal of certain erodible soils will have minimal impact on City property and benefit the City’s property by providing shoreline stabilization. As a result the Departments support granting a temporary construction easement at no cost. Construction will require the removal of some trees on City property and the Romanelli’s will be required to provide a planting plan consistent with Executive Order 2015-01 to replace any trees that are removed. The City possesses a Release and Satisfaction agreement, recorded as [Volume 461, pages 508-511, Delaware County, Ohio Recorder’s Office] on the entire parcel therein releasing the City from any past or future liability associated with the operation of Hoover Reservoir, including but not limited to erosion and flooding.

Fiscal Impact: None.
