Explanation

AN19-010

 

BACKGROUND:

This ordinance approves the acceptance of certain territory (AN19-010) by the city of Columbus and authorizes its transfer from Clinton Township to Montgomery Township per an annexation agreement between the City and the Township. The Ohio Revised Code stipulates that to be effective, City acceptance must take place a minimum of 60 days from the receipt by the City Clerk of the approval notice from the county. If City Council does not accept the ordinance within 120 days of its first consideration, the annexation will be considered rejected. This petition was filed with Franklin County on November 12, 2019. Franklin County approved the annexation on November 26, 2019 and the City Clerk received notice on December 16, 2019. No service ordinance was required because this annexation was filed as a Type 1 application as defined by the ORC. Although not required, a service statement reflecting the City’s ability to provide services for this site upon annexation is attached.

 

The use of a Type 1 annexation application is stipulated in the annexation agreement between the City and Clinton Township. The agreement was authorized by City Council via ordinance 1982-2019, approved July 22, 2019. The annexation agreement also requires that territory (as described in the agreement) annexed to the City of Columbus from Clinton Township be transferred to Montgomery Township. This ordinance authorizes the submission of a petition to the Board of County Commissioners of Franklin County, Ohio, requesting that the boundary lines of Montgomery County be changed to make them identical with the corporate limits of the City of Columbus for this annexation. The petition will be filed in accordance with Section 503.07 of the Ohio Revised Code. 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Provision of municipal services does represent cost to the City; however, the annexation of land also has the potential to create revenue to the City.
