1. Background
The City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, received a request from Ted Repasky on behalf of Repasky Waste Services asking that the City sell an approximate 0.070 acre (3,062+/- square feet) portion of the Bonham Avenue right-of-way. This right-of-way consists of an unnamed alley running north/south directionally and an unnamed alley running east/west directionally. Alley One runs south off of Bonham at the eastern terminus for approximately 126 feet. Alley Two runs west for approximately 190 feet. This portion of right-of-way is adjacent to parcel 010-020828.

Sale of this excess right-of-way will expand Repasky Waste Services current lot size which would make a substantial difference in maneuverability for vehicles in the lot. The Department of Public Service has agreed to sell the right-of-way as described below and shown within attached legal description and exhibit and extinguishes its need for this public right-of-way.

Per current practice, comments were solicited from interested parties including City agencies, private utilities, and the applicable area commission before it was determined that, subject to the retention of a general utility easement for those utilities currently located within this right-of-way, the City will not be adversely affected by the transfer of this right-of-way. The Department of Public Service submitted a request to the City Attorney’s Office asking that they establish a value for this right-of-way, and a value of $2,287.00 was established. This request went before the Land Review Commission on November 21, 2019. After review of the request, the Land Review Commission voted to recommend the above referenced right-of-way be transferred to Repasky Waste Services at the cost of $2,287.00 to them.

The City will receive a total of $2,287.00 and the funds are to be deposited in Fund 7748, Project P537650, as consideration for the transfer of the requested right-of-way.
