Explanation

AN19-011

BACKGROUND:

This ordinance approves the acceptance of certain territory (AN19-011) by the city of Columbus. 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 5, 2019. City Council approved a service ordinance addressing the site on November 18, 2019. Franklin County approved the annexation on November 26, 2019 and the City Clerk received notice on December 16, 2019.

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.
